A native Californian, Kris Harper Bush studied music
and liberal arts at Mills College in Oakland, California. With a passion
for good old-fashioned “snail mail”, she keeps up extensive correspondences as well as writing biographical histories
into the many genealogies she researches. Her award winning poem “Bilingual/Bilingue” was published in The
Multilingual Educator, the publication of the California Association of Bilingual Educators, in 1999. Kris currently resides
in Idaho with her husband, musician and high school
sweetheart Robert Bush.
