Author's Bio

KG Newman is a fourth-generation Coloradan and sportswriter by day at The Denver Post. The poet and literary editor lives in Hidden Village with his wife Dani and three kids, and believes there’s a bit of honesty in everybody — it just takes the right woman, daughter, son or Sunday doubleheader at Coors Field in order to bring it out.

In addition to hiking, camping, cycling, skiing and living out a lost dream in men’s summer league baseball, he’s quick to shoot in pickup hoops and always swings the driver way too hard on the back nine. He dreams in words, the projector long broken. And he’s still waiting to paint the perfect poem.

Newman is an Arizona State University graduate and the poetry editor of Hidden Peak Press, an independent poetry/fiction publisher based in Colorado.
