Born under the sign of Libra, Anita Sullivan cheerfully admits to a life governed by matters of beauty, balance, harmony – and indecisiveness. She taught without becoming a teacher; danced without becoming a dancer; longed to live in the desert and kept coming back to the rainforest. A non-stop writer since the age of six, she has published two essay collections, a literary fantasy novel and four collections of poetry. Her latest chapbook And If the Dead Do Dream, true to her Libra roots, has a theme of parallel worlds.
