C.M. Rivers grew up in wet green northwest Oregon, in the Cascade foothills, the Willamette Valley, and the Coast Range.  A culinary career pays the bills, but his true passion lies in writing and reading.  He is inspired by the intersection of the temporal and the timeless; the confluence of surprising revelation with the seemingly mundane. His poetry has appeared in various literary magazines and online journals, and has been nominated once for a Pushcart Prize.  He is surrounded by monumental stacks of unpublished manuscripts – poetry, middle grade fantasy, children’s stories, fiction and personal essays – none of which have been attended to properly, and all of which threaten to topple over at any moment, leading to sudden death by paper and ink.
