Rita Sommers-Flanagan is a writer of poems, parables, textbooks and trivia. Her blogs, https://godcomesby.com/ and https://drbossypants.wordpress.com allow her to express both the mystical and the maniacal. Her followers are loyal and generally kind. Her poems have appeared in many publications, including Abbey Press, Northern Lights, Fireweed Press, Sojourners, Calyx, and early in life, the IGA Regional Newsletter. She will be publishing her first novel, Boomers, in May, hoping the garden is planted by then. As professor emeritus and vulnerable human, she’s survived both academia and cancer, and is now devoted to finding meaning in words, family, art, sunshine, friends, and even the occasional enemy.
