Jude Deason was born in small-town Illinois. After years of taking trips on horseback, she took a more radical ride, leaving Chicago and her profession as a licensed clinical social worker for life on a remote ranch in northern New Mexico. It was then that poetry entered her life in earnest. In her living room, she has a large piano which she loves, but she doesn’t play it anymore, not after discovering poetry. Her poems appeared in Cold Mountain Review, Willow Springs, Briar Cliff Review among several other journals. Her first book, Tin Cup, came out in December of 2015 and her second book, The Turn That Tightens is in production. Deason now lives and writes in Santa Fe.
