The Host.

When she is not teaching Special Education and college English, Tara Lesko can be found on her laptop. 95% of the time. But sometimes she manages to squeeze in some creative non-fiction writing, poetry writing, mixed media artwork, drawing, napping, reading, zoning out, and picking away at a novel. She is the author of Serotonin with a side of fries, please – a collection of stories and poems, and Let Us Keep Driving – a collection of poetry. Both available on Amazon. Her writing has been seen in the Comstock Review, Alehouse Press, and New Jersey Bards. Find her also at, Instagram: @taraalesko Twitter: @taraleskowriter
