Phyllis Carito was born a Bronx Italian and that sits at the core of who she is and how she expresses herself through her writing. Public libraries opened the doors to her world of reading and writing, and her work experiences have included public and private libraries, media print production, and teaching creative writing. The opportunity to earn an MFA with a writing focus through Manhattanville College cemented her desire as a poet and writer.Her book of poems barely a whisper was released through Finishing Line Press. Other published poems and prose appeared in Passager, Stone Highway Review, Inkwell Review, Vermont Literary Review, Voices in Italian Americana, and Returning Woman. Poems and short stories have been her main focus until this novel. She is currently working on the precision of flash fiction; and putting together a collection of short stories.
