Heather M. F. Lyke is a queer writer living in the southeast corner of Minnesota. By day, Lyke works in the world of K-12 education. On evenings and weekends, she creates. She builds things out of nothing: sometimes with paint, occasionally with fabric, but most often with words. Her published nonfiction works focus on teaching and learning; however, most of her work is poetry, which often stems from her strong sense of place.
Aside from writing, Lyke is best known for saying 'yes' to far too many things, singing the wrong lyrics to "Roam" by The B-52, underestimating how long projects will actually take to complete, and communicating in metaphor.
