About the author

K.O. Newman

<p>After growing up in the Midwest, I took flight to New England for University.&nbsp; After graduating with a BA in English Literature from the University of Vermont, I moved back home to be close to family, work at a school during the day, and teaching creative writing at night.&nbsp; I took my first creative writing class while in college, at St. Louis Writer&#39;s Workshop, and from there I was hooked.&nbsp; Many years later, I&nbsp;found myself living in a small town in Illinois, and married to a wonderful man.&nbsp; Together we have&nbsp;an amazing&nbsp;young son, who is absolutly the light of my life.&nbsp; I work at a retirement community and write in my spare time.</p>
