Robert Nicholas Taylor & Christina Anne Taylor

I’m Christina. Poetica~Place is my literary blog that encompasses two micro-presses as well as book reviews, Coffee with the Poets interviews, etc. (Click on the authors’ names to view their titles.)

As micro-publishers, my husband and I self-publish through our private “friends & family” imprint, The Red Salon. I also publish others’ poetry through Middle Island Press, Appalachia’s finest publishing service-provider.

As a writer, I have three collections of poetry and verse in print and am working on my fourth book.
