Biographical and Professional Information

Beth Staas is a coal miner's daughter, the first of her family born in the United States. After following her husband in a corporate gypsy existence and raising five children, she went back to school, and later taught for some 25 years. Being told she was a "good writer" all her life, she began putting ideas together, finally seeing two books published: ''The Two Percent Miracle'' and ''An Audience of One''. Not until some few years back did she begin writing poetry. Since then, she's had several pieces published. Currently she is completing her third book and writing poems whenever the spirit moves her.
