K.M. Alleena, also known as Katie Morton, is a Creative Writing Major at SUNY Oswego and has Anthropology and Native American Studies as her minors. As a writer and literary citizen, her primary genre is Poetry, but she has a deep love of Creative Nonfiction and Fiction. She has two strange jobs, and says that they are where the majority of her characters come from — one being an apprentice tarot reader and the other being a gas station attendant. Besides all that, she is a student of many things metaphysically, including the Tarot and Heathen religion and mythology. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys playing old video games and talking to parrots, often simultaneously. She has been published in her campus literary journal, the Great Lake Review, and also was a winner of Miracle Magazine’s Poetry Competition 2013.
