About the Author
Georgia Santa Maria is a life-long New Mexican who has been an artist, writer and photographer most of her life. She has also worked as a counselor, store-keeper and a mom. Her work has been published in many journals and anthologies. Her book of poetry and photographs, Lichen Kisses, was published in April, 2013, and her book Dowsing came out in March of 2017. She is currently working on another poetry book, a cookbook, and a book of short stories. Her work may be found online at Duke City Dime Stories, "best of" collection. Recently, she was first runner-up for the LUMMOX #5 Poetry Prize. Merimee Moffitt arrived in El Rito, New Mexico, in 1970 in a big shiny green Chrysler full of Vietnam vets, two dogs, their pot dealer, and another girl. She then lived in a cabin south of Vallecitos in the Ortega Mountains and a year later in Taos where her first job was teaching all the school kids from northern NM how to swim at the newly opened Taos community pool. Her boyfriend and father of her son worked as an electrician's helper. Many of her first experiences in NM are chronicled in her book of poems Making Little Edens and in her memoir Free Love, Free Fall: Scenes from the West Coast Sixties (also stories of NM). She earned her BA and MA in English from UNM, taught for 22 years in grades 8 through CNM (community college) and has been widely published in local and national journals and reviews. She is now the editor of a Sunday Blog on Duke City Fix at the DitchRider's page. (Please send her poems.) Her third book, just a little stuck in the chute, is called Blame: poems about addiction illness. Contact her through FB or her website merimeemoffitt.wordpress.com.
