THE EDITOR'S NOTES!
Just a little note about Tyra ... born and partially raised on Chicago’s south side where she began writing short stories and poems. Through her fascination of words and all things made up, she was able to make connections with her peers and eventually, her knack for creative writing
gained her great admiration and respect. Tyra has spent the past 18 years serving as a teacher and program director for various high schools, colleges and universities. She enjoys traveling to tropical climates and dreams of one day moving to the island of Curacao to write, teach and lay on the beach all day.
