James Diaz was born into a trailer park full of pain somewhere in North Carolina. He felt his away along the wall, mostly, for some time, until the wall gave way and he had to learn how to wing the whole damn thing. He was visited by a mad angel called poetry at 13 and has stayed on that path ever since. He is the author of This Someone I Call Stranger and founding editor of Anti-Heroin Chic. Diaz's most recent work can be found in Cobra Milk and forthcoming in Resurrection Mag.
