Jane Barnes was born December 29, 1943, at the navel yard in Brooklyn, New York. She grew up in Fort Bragg, a small town on the coast of northern California (which is neither in North Carolina nor a base of the armed forces -- salmon and redwoods, that wort of thing). She attended college in Oregon, Peru, California, Georgia, and Massachusetts, majoring in Spanish and Russian. She has lived in Boston for the past fifteen years, studying the viola da gamba for the first six, and managing Dark Horse, a literary newspaper, for another six years. For the last three years she has been writing short stories and revising a novel. She is an editor of Quark Press, which published two chapbooks of her minimal poems, Mythologies, in 1976 and They Say I Talk In My Sleep, in 1978. She has been employed as a shrimp seller, credit investigator, computer manual writer, London tour guide, teacher, bibliographer, and, most recently, secretary. She came out as a Lesbian in April , 1977, and lives in the North End of Boston with her lover, Linda Ready.
