A psychotherapist for thirty-five years, Cecele Kraus listened with ear and heart to the stories of others. Over the past fifteen years, she has turned to her own stories as well, remembering details and writing poems and short prose pieces. She has authored three poetry chapbooks: Dreaming Barranquilla (Troy Bookmakers), Tuscaloosa Bypass (Finishing Line Press), and Harmonica (Liquid Light Press). Writing about her husband has helped in the grieving process since his death in late 2017. Cecele lives in Copake, New York.
