Guest Biography: 

Allen McNair a published writer of short and epic poetry who has illustrated his work in marker art and acrylics.  I have written and published a major work, I Dream of A'maresh, through CreateSpace and AuthorHouse.  I have contributed my earliest written work to Thresholds' literary magazine, The Musing Place and the Chicago Writing Alliance publication, Journal of Ordinary Thought.  In 1990, straight out of Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor's degree, I lost my job and became homeless.  Much of my early writing of poetry was inspired by this shocking experience of losing my housing.  I am now enrolled in the Maharishi University of Management Master's degree program in Vedic Science, the theoretical basis for Transcendental Meditation.  I now live on my own in a one-bedroom apartment with my cat, a Siamese Yellow-Tail, Butterscotch.
