Ana Lisa de Jong considers herself a poet and writer first, and chaplaincy administrator second. She lives in the beautiful North West of Auckland, New Zealand and prizes her glimpse of the Upper Harbour from her kitchen window. Poetry is written at the kitchen bench, in the car, on the beach, in her lunch break, whenever inspiration strikes. She is the author of five published collections of poetry and generously gives away smaller collections of her poetry on-line. Ana Lisa writes at livingtreepoetry.com.
