Kristiana Jorge teaches preschoolers by day and pens free-verse poetry by night(and during most of her lunch breaks). As a mental health advocate who has ADHD and dyslexia, she is on a mission to help women who struggle with mental illness themselves through the power of poetic storytelling. An aficionada of the macabre and Edgar Allan Poe’s haunting writing style, it’s no surprise that her debut book is titled “Haunted Houses”. In a year’s time, she will release book number two: “Constant Conclusions”.
When she isn’t pouring her soul out onto paper, you can find this ambitious poetess binge-watching scary movies, riding around DuPage in her Vespa, or capturing whimsical moments through a camera lens.
