Kirsten Ellicson grew up in rural Richmond, Massachusetts in the Berkshires. A French literature specialist, she has taught university courses in the humanities including French language and literature, major works of Western literature, academic writing, film studies and English as a foreign language. Currently living in Paris, she works as a writer and translator. She is the author of a collection of poetry, "Light in the Dark Pool" (December 2014, available on Amazon), which reflects her conception of poetry as an exploration of the boundaries between self and other. In her free time, she has contributed to Global March Against Child Labor and WorldPulse as a volunteer translator. She enjoys spending time in nature and with her family, and engaging in intense conversations.
