Claudia McKinney Mundell loved words as soon as she met them. Learning to read and write were the keys to the world that opened doors for her outside of Southeastern Kansas. She started collecting snippets of great thoughts as early as third grade, was writing poetry by fourth grade, and never stopped putting her thoughts to paper.

Writing is both work and hobby. Claudia finds it so satisfying to work hard on a piece and bring it to a creative completion. Once she starts writing a story or poem, it is hard to leave it and come back to the real world for ordinary things like cooking and cleaning. Other hobbies are reading, collecting Blue Willow dishes, and drinking good tea.

  1. Claudia’s work always contains amazing images. This poem transports me to her office where I can actually feel the cozy warmth of her beloved dog snuggling on her lap. Evoking such tranquility in the reader is a testament to her powerful verse. This a beautiful poem!


  2. Anyone who reads this is also bundled up in the blue recliner. The words are so clear, and it evokes a feeling of calm and tranquility. I hope the phone does not ring!


  3. This wonderful poem reminds me that dogs sense more than we know sometimes. Oh to cuddle with a fur baby. This piece makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
