Winner of the 2015 New Mexico-Arizona Book Award, Doll God, Luanne Castle’s first collection of poetry, was published by Aldrich Press (2015). Luanne studied English and creative writing at the University of California, Riverside (PhD); Western Michigan University (MFA); and Stanford University.  She has been a Fellow at the Center for Ideas and Society at the University of California, Riverside. Her poetry and prose have appeared in Grist, Copper Nickel, River Teeth, the museum of americana, Crack the Spine, The Review Review, and many other journals. She contributed to Twice-Told Children’s Tales: The Influence of Childhood Reading on Writers for Adults, edited by Betty Greenway, and to The Doll Collection, edited by Diane Lockward.  Dividing her time between California and Arizona, Luanne shares land with a herd of javelina.
