Elisabeth Kinsey lives in Denver and after two Creative Writing degrees, is aiming to finish her dissertation about the Female Bidlungsroman at the University of Denver.
She hails from Los Gatos where she was heavily influenced by Italian and Jewish matriarchs. These immigrant personas infuse her daily writing. Her third memoir, I Was There, details her California experience --- when you grow up in Eden, everything else pales in comparison.
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.
