Author’s Bio

Angela Doll Carlson is a poet and essayist best known for her blog Mrs. Metaphor which you can visit HERE.

Mrs Metaphor connects the dots of daily life in an attempt to humbly reach the deep “a-ha” we all seek. Angela began to write as Mrs Metaphor in 2006 and has maintained a modest but dedicated following ever since. Her first book, “Nearly Orthodox” was released by Conciliar Press in 2014.

Angela currently lives in Chicago, IL with her husband, David and her 4 outrageously spirited yet remarkably likeable children.
