Misha is the author of three books of short prose and poetry, and is currently working on her third novel Alruna and a libretto for composer Arie Von Schutterhoff on String Theory. Misha lives in the Blue Mountains of Oregon where she owns and operates a small farm raising Norwegian Fjord horses.

Carter Revard, born and raised on the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma, was given his Osage name in September 1952, and then road a foamy-throated Queen Elizabeth over the whale-road to England, and a bus down the wrong side of an asphalt road to Oxford -- where, that October, he heard Dylan Thomas read in the tongues of men and angels his 'Poem in October.' In March 2006 his seven-line autobiography, 'Birch Canoe,' was among the Poems on the Underground in London.
