by Marcie Lynn Tentchoff

A maid too modest
hair and feet turn leaf and root
brow dress on the moss


Marcie Lynn Tentchoff is an Aurora Award winning poet/writer from the west coast of Canada, where she lives in the middle of a rainforest with her family and various animals, both invited and not. Between the raccoons in the roof, the deer in the garden, the chocolate-stealing skunks, and the occasional visiting cougar, she's written poems and stories that have appeared in such magazines as On Spec, Weird Tales, Dreams and Nightmares, and Illumen, as well as in anthologies and online publications.

When asked to name what she's currently reading, she replied, "Most recently I've been rereading To Ride a Rathorn, the latest book in P.C. Hodgell's wonderful Kencyrath series."
