Tony Burfield

Author's Bio

My wife and I live in the Southern Rockies on the east slope of the Long's Peak Massif and work in libraries along the Front Range. At the end of 2008, I founded the Bijou Poetry Review of which I am the current editor. Right now, I'm really into haikai, hiking, and skating miniramp. Someday I hope to be able to grow a beard, but it isn't looking good.
