Janet Butler lives in Alameda with Fulmi, a lovely Spaniel mix she rescued while living in central Italy. Upheaval was one of three winning selections in Red Ochre Lit’s 2012 Chapbook Contest. She has recently taken up the Japanese Tanka, and will have one as Editor’s Choice in the January issue of Cattails as well as upcoming tanka publications in Atlas Poetica, and Undertow. She is a moderator of the monthly Poetry and Prose at the Blue Danube in Alameda, and is a watercolor painter.
