Lois Marie Harrod’s sixteenth poetry collection, Nightmares of the Minor Poet, was published by Five Oaks Press, 2016. Fragments from the Biography of Nemesis appeared in 2013. A Geraldine R. Dodge poet, she teaches at The College of New Jersey and the Princeton Senior Resource Center For online bio and links, see www.loismarieharrod.org. When Lois is not writing, she is often walking while listening to her husband talk on about James Joyce or Marcel Proust or the latest mystery he is reading. She often gives readings in seemly and seamy places with The Cool Women Poets, a splendid group of minor poets, and she loves to hike, swing from trees and take pictures of black birches on stilts.  The bad-mannered clock, a Seth Thomas, was the gift of her taciturn mother whose name is Helen.  Pictured below with the clock is Lois’s granddaughter Sophia Helen, who gave up her dancing career at six and began to train for the Olympic swim team.
