Author's Bio

Cheryl A. Rice is the author of Love’s Compass, My Minnesota Boyhood, and co-author with Guy Reed of Until the Words Came. A Best of the Net nominee, Rice is also the host and founder of the now-defunct Sylvia Plath Bake-Off, perhaps the world’s first combination poetry reading and baked good competition. Her poems have also appeared in such anthologies as Riverine, For Enid With Love, and A Slant of Light, as well as in The Baltimore Review, Chronogram, Home Planet News, and The Temple. Rice has been a featured performer in venues from New York City to Troy for many years. Her RANDOM WRITING poetry workshops have gathered throughout the Hudson Valley, where she has made her home for the last forty-odd years. She started out as an infant on Long Island in the early 1960s, a fine time to do so.
