C.M. Rivers grew up reading to the sound of rain on the roof, in the Willamette valley and Cascade mountains of northwest Oregon. He is the author of the poetry collection How To Carry Soup (Homebound Publications), and his poetry has appeared in literary magazines and journals across the United States. He’s spent most of his life wrestling with phobias, and occasionally borrows confidence from his future self. If you’ve nothing better to do (and surely you must have) you can follow C.M. on Goodreads, Amazon, Facebook, or Instagram @dreadpiratebooks.
