Born in Lorain, Ohio, Penelope Moffet was transplanted to Southern California by her parents when she was not quite 3. As a child, she became The Fastest Finger in the West, teaching herself to rapidly type up stories and poems with just one finger, a skill that did her little good in her future work as bakery girl, fast food cashier, draperies manager, paste-up artist, publicist, freelance writer, photographer, editor and legal secretary.

Her poetry has been published in Natural Bridge, Permafrost, Levure Litteraire, Truthdig, Pearl, Steam Ticket, Wavelength, The Sow’s Ear Poetry Review and other literary journals. Her poems have also been included in What Wildness is This: Women Write about the Southwest (University of Texas Press, 2007) and Coiled Serpent: Poets Arising from the Cultural Quakes and Shifts of Los Angeles (Tia Chucha Press, 2016). She has been awarded artist residencies by Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, The Mesa Refuge, The Helen R. Whiteley Center and Alderworks Alaska. She has published two chapbooks, Keeping Still (Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, 1995) and It Isn’t That They Mean to Kill You (Arroyo Seco Press, 2018).
