About Lisa K. Winkler
Lisa K. Winkler is the author of A Black Cowboy’s Ride Across America and the editor of Tangerine Tango: Women Writers Share Slices of Life. She is also a journalist and an educator, and has written numerous essays for book anthologies and magazine articles. She taught middle school Language Arts for 15 years and has several teaching guides published in professional journals and the trade press.
Tangerine Tango came about after Lisa’s one-year anniversary blogging under www.cyclingrandma.wordpress.com. She invited several writers, mostly other bloggers she’s befriended through blogging, to join the project. Without giving the writers any themes, she received submissions that spanned the entire citrus spectrum, from sour to sweet. Tangerine Tango includes essays and poems about parents, families, jobs, food, and memories.
