Jacie Ragan recently celebrated her fortieth wedding anniversary, and is looking forward to enjoying the retirement of her husband Bill. She loves baking bread, hiking through the woods, picnicking on the banks of the Mississippi, and reading and writing formal verse. She has a tendency to hoard teapots, baskets, and Hello Kitty memorabilia.
Her poems have received awards from The Lyric, Byline, Gaslight, Winning Writers, etc. Her work appeared in 150 Contemporary Sonnets, edited by William Baer. She's delighted (and grateful) to find out that aging is a whole lot more fun than she ever expected it would be.
