Elisabeth Kinsey spent her early life walking amongst the giant redwoods in Northern California. Her Italian grandmother lived down the street from Winchester Mystery House...she doesn't know why she mentions this, only that it's pretty cool.
Her Jewish grandparents made a much needed contrast to her parents' wish for Mormonism.
Elisabeth received her BA and MA in Creative Writing and is now pursuing a PhD in Literary Studies 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.
