Kassie J Runyan is a best-selling poet and fiction author who currently resides in New York City with her husband, Rick; and their two companion animals - Lily (kitten) and Sydney (parrot). When she is not writing you can find her exploring the US and other countries, spending time back home with family, editing photos as half of the R&K photography duo, making puppets,  walking the streets of NYC with Rick, searching for a new brewery, or looking for a stray animal to love.

Kassie is the co-creator and owner of OpenDoor Magazine, a globally distributed digital literature and arts magazine. The goal of OpenDoor Magazine is to provide unknown and rising poets, authors, song-writers, and artists access to a global audience and exposure.
