Author's Bio

Amber Koneval is a twenty-something Regis University alumni with a B.A. in English and Religious Studies. She has been published in many journals, in both electronic and print formats, and has released a collection of poetry through eLectio publishing. She enjoy writing free-verse poetry on a large variety of subjects, though her most prominent themes include God, mental disability, and her personal experiences. She currently lives in Colorado with three housemates and is still very close to her large Irish-Catholic family. She plans to stay in Colorado all her life and become a cat lady when she can no longer pick up a pen.
