Deborah Gabriel has been writing poetry since she was 12, but she has only recently begun sharing it publicly. After relocating from the Seattle area to the Finger Lakes area, she made up for lost time by joining several  writers’ groups and honing her writing skills by working intensively  with accomplished poets on both coasts. Deborah has read her work in venues as diverse as public schools and private homes. She has performed as Featured Poet at the Free Speech Zone in Rochester, New York. To learn more about Deborah, visit her website: http://wellmet.net/.

Pins & Pulses was created in collaboration with award-winning visual artist Elaine Verstraete.  Elaine is accomplished in three distinct drawing styles, including her highly regarded In Line series, in which she renders the forms of musicians, nudes, and other human figures. For Pins & Pulses, Elaine read each poem in the collection and created one or more drawings in response to each poem. Elaine titled her work for this book “Interpretations in Line.”
