Elise Matthesen was born and raised in the U.S. Upper Midwest and is still here. She is a disabled poet and a third generation factory worker. She strives to follow Neil Gaiman’s advice to make good art, particularly in her day job where she makes art jewelry with evocative names. Some of this art jewelry has inspired other people to write, which is what got Elise a World Fantasy Award nomination in 2009. She is very fond of sushi and of investigating the comfort food of many cultures, and she has a lingering suspicion that the liver paté reference in Lois McMaster Bujold’s work was aimed at her. Her most memorable day as a coffeehouse performance poet was the one when Dr. Maya Angelou unexpectedly became part of her birthday party before the Twin-Cities-wide poetry slam competition.
