Nancy Jentsch enjoys living in rural northern Kentucky with her family and numerous farm animals. In the summer, the hammock is one of her favorite places. Her hobbies include walking, knitting and Sudoku. Since 1982 she has been invigorated by her career teaching German and Spanish at Northern Kentucky University. Writing poetry is a fairly new ambition, and is guided by a fantastic poetry group that meets regularly to write, to critique and most recently to collaborate on a chapbook that is currently seeking a publisher. Her poetry and short fiction have appeared in For a Better World: Poems and Drawings on Peace and Justice, The Journal of Kentucky Studies, The Whistling Fire and the Aurorean.
