by Carmella Roy Kearsley

In the process of getting a family and its history onto paper, Carmella Roy Kearsley’s poetic memoirs begin in Depression-era America, then hover nostalgically around an idyllic family farm, travel through an urban Pittsburgh, and fly away as far as the Middle East. Her poems and short stories range from amused and amusing love-filled recollections of domesticity to disturbing, even haunting forays into the dark and hidden places of family life. With the unremitting ring of truth throughout, these poems and short stories will reveal and celebrate places, times, and a quintessentially American life and family.


Carmella Roy Kearsley, born in 1932, is a native of Homewood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She finds her inspiration in her family, with whom she wants to share the stories of her life. She holds a master’s degree in English from the University of Massachusetts, and since she started being a student again in 1996, she has been very busy. She currently lives with her husband, Richard, in Norwell, MA, where she enjoys cooking, reading, and writing.
