Elisabeth Kinsey was born in Northern California and always dreams of the “missed place,” the places in our imagination that become hallowed after leaving them.
Coming from Italian/Jewish immigrants, she was influenced by matriarchs and believes that through fiction and hybrid texts, soceity can learn to nurture its girls and women and protect their successes.
She has written and published femoir, female focused essays on birding, nannying in Berlin, Germany, extreme feminist gardening and finding rainbows after divorce. She is currently tracing female growth and “bildung” for her PhD dissertation at the University of Denver. She is published in Literature Today, Women in Nature, Greenwoman Magazine, Wazee Journal, Apogee, Ask Me About My Divorce, and Emergency Online Journal among other publications. She can be called upon to lecture on Divorce, Northern Italian Cooking and zone 5 gardening. She could say she's intermediate in German, but perhaps more accurately, she's a German enthusiast. And yes, that is a Gorn.
