Sandra McCrae

In poems shaped by nature, news stories, and the sine wave of motherhood, Sandra S. McCrea shows us the miracles embedded in the everyday.  Her X-ray vision transports us to the many worlds tucked inside a mysterious suitcase, a kitchen pantry, even the internal clockwork of disease, which "burns like a star/in the universe of the body."  She writes about nature and domestic complexities, the political and the divine, food, and hunger of all kinds. Her books include all the way to just about there  (FutureCycle Press); a prose poem collection,The Magic Rectangle (Folded Word); and the bestselling cookbook Weber's Big Book of

Grilling  (Chronicle).  Sandra's poetry has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies, and she has been nominated for a Pushcart prize.  She lives in the mountains and teaches creative writing, literature, and composition at Red Rocks Community College near Denver, Colorado.
