Lisa R. Kindel started writing as soon as she could hold a crayon and published her first piece in 1981 entitled "Me" in the Danville Advocate Messenger, thanks to journalist, Judy Sieweke. Since then, Kindel's written and published in Kentucky Monthly, TagMag, US News and World Report, along with several other websites. She chose haiku as her medium of expression after studying in Japan, and it didn't take as much time as iambic pentameter. When she's not writing haiku, she's posting smart ass remarks on social media, reading something interesting, doing taxes, learning how to make cheese and rescuing cats. You can follow her as LRKindel on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
