Heavily informed by her childhood moving around the mountains of the Southwest, the sixteen poems of Colluvium address the issues of family, religion, boundaries and personal identity in a complicated and insightful manner. Dee Dee Chapman is a Pacific Northwest transplant who studies Creative Writing at Western Washington University. Bellingham, Washington has been her home for six years, the longest time she's stayed in one place. She is a cinephile and her favorite animal is the Megalodon shark of prehistoric times.
