Ida Rae Egli

The descendant of Gold Rush immigrants, Ida Rae Egli has always enjoyed the comfort that is California - except when traveling the world. The editor of No Rooms of Their Own: Women Writers of Early California, 1848-1869, and Women of the Gold Rush: "The New Penelope" and Other Stories (Heyday Books, Berkeley), and numerous short stories and poetry, she teaches Creative Writing for Santa Rosa Junior College and writes at her home on the Sonoma coast. Married to a Greek - born during World War II on the island of Rhodes - who is a European historian, she considers Greece her second home. She has two marvelous children.
