I’m Christina. As a poetess, I pen primarily under the ancestral name Christina Finlayson Taylor and have a collection of verse in print as well as contributions in various anthologies and publications. I’m currently working on my second book.

As micro-publishers, Robert and I self-publish through our private imprint, The Red Salon. I also publish others’ poetry through Middle Island Press, Appalachia’s finest and most aspiring publishing company, proudly international with its roots in chapbooks and its reaches ever expanding.

Poetica~Place is my literary blog space that encompasses our micro-presses as well as reviews, “Coffee with the Poets” interviews, etc.
