6/30/14 Adele Mendelson
Adele Mendelson had a long career as an ESL teacher at the University of California at Berkeley. She began writing poetry by accident and then devoted herself to it for many years. Now she is mostly writing fiction, but the poems keep coming anyway, for which she is thankful. She has produced several volumes of work and enjoys sharing her writing at venues around the Bay Area. She believes that writing should be sexy, there should be something at stake, and the dark side should be lurking just beneath the cover.
