Dr. Olympia Sibley has been a teacher at Texas A&M University and Blinn College for many years. She earned an M.A. from the University of Houston, and a Ph.D from Texas A&M University in English Literature (with a coherent minor in Philosophy). Born in Iowa and raised in Minnesota, Olympia spent her senior year of high school in Kenya, graduating from the Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya. She now resides in rural Texas, somewhere near the Navasota River in an off-the-grid eco-cottage with her husband, a Russian Orthodox priest. When she isn't chanting, grading, reading, or teaching, Olympia enjoys writing poetry and spending time in the tree house her husband built here in a century-old oak tree on their five wooded acres. A winner of the Gordone Poetry Prize, her poetry has been published in a variety of venues. Zoom and the Neanderthal Girl is her first book length collection of verse.
