Alice Constantine

Alice Constantine lives in NRH, Texas and mothers two "lost boys"; ages 5 and 11. Stumbling into motherhood at the age of 15 and leaving the nest early, she continuously learns about life through teaching them. She has been writing poetry and short stories since the age of twelve, using creative mediums to express her perceptions of a kaleidoscopic reality and the labyrinth that is her mind. She attends University at UTA and is inching her way towards a Master's degree in Forensic Biology. Presently, she is working to put together her first poetry chapbook, as well as writing childlike books to be designed for adults to consume. In her spare time, she adventures with her children and faces each day as entirely new and full of potential; never looking back.
