Natalia Corres has worked in technology for a few decades, built a pet sitting business from scratch (and retired it – passing the clients to her ex-employees and helping them start their own businesses), and now spends her time in creative pursuits – writing, painting and managing tech projects. She has published books of poetry, one novella, non-fiction, science- fiction, speculative fiction and a collection of flash fiction – all available on Amazon. She writes regularly on her blogs – Wind in Her Mane and the Zen of Living Smaller and is working on several projects in the speculative and weird fiction genres. When she isn’t writing, or painting - she's reading, or playing with her furbabies, or watching the tiny dinosaurs and birds in her back yard. She feeds a murder of crows on a regular basis and they bring along their buddies - the raccoon brothers, the donkeys who roam wild in the neighborhood, and sometimes a skunk or possum.
