Anne Kaylor is an eclectic conundrum of conservative and liberal thinking, finding her greatest passion in the release of words from mind onto that white expanse of the page. Her sanity is dependent on writing, on continually deconstructing the world into a personally meaningful place.
Though born in Maine, Anne has spent much of her life in the South and now lives in Mount Holly, North Carolina, with her husband, James. She resonates with her favorite author, Flannery O’Connor, on the dichotomy of being Catholic and Southern and writes from this perspective.
In addition to editing and designing books for other writers, Anne is founder, publisher, and editor of the flash prose and short fiction journal moonShine review. Her own works have appeared in Pearl, Thrift Poetic Arts Journal, Iodine Poetry Journal and Kakalak Anthology of Carolina Poets, and her full-length book of poetry and photography, Floating a Full Boat, is available through Main Street Rag Publishing Company.
Beyond editing and writing, Anne’s passions include traveling, scuba diving, and rescuing those in need, mostly dogs and cats but humans, too.
Anne has an MA in English from UNC-Charlotte and a BA in English and Journalism from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Indiana, where she acquired her first job as Director of External Communications for the Sisters of Providence.
