Phyllis Cole-Dai began pecking away on a manual typewriter in childhood and never stopped. In her work, she seeks to “write across what divides us.” Her most recent book is For the Sake of One We Love and Are Losing: A Meditative Poem & Journal. Other titles include the historical novel Beneath the Same Stars and the anthology Poetry of Presence (edited with Ruby Wilson). Originally from Ohio, Cole-Dai now resides with her scientist-husband, teenage son, and two cats in a 130-year-old house in Brookings, South Dakota.
