About the Author

Charmi Keranen has lived in Northern Indiana for long enough (always). She has a BA in English from Indiana University South Bend and is self-employed as a proofreader of court transcripts, which she shamelessly mines for her writing endeavors. She and her husband have two children, both of whom are fleeing their childhoods to pursue college degrees. Her work has appeared or will be forthcoming at Salt River Review, Elimae, jmww, blossombones, Stirring, Slow Trains, Passages North, and elsewhere.
