Arthur lives in Baltimore, where he teaches in the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University.

Sandra S. McRae writes about nature and domestic complexities, the political and the divine, food, and hunger of all kinds. Her books include a full-length poetry collection, all the way to just about there (FutureCycle Press); a prose poem collection, The Magic Rectangle (Folded Word); and the bestselling cookbook Weber's Big Book of Grilling (Chronicle).
