Georgina Key is an award winning writer and artist who lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and two sons. She graduated with an MA in English Literature and has taught writing for many years: formally at the college level, through Writers in the Schools and Grackle and Grackle, and independently as a private tutor. She and her husband founded the children's literary zine, Silver Rocket and co-authored the chapbook, Mean Ugly Cat
After moving to the states from England, Georgina and her family would vacation in Galveston, Texas each summer. Her dream of owning her own little house by the sea came true years later. The nearby community of Bolivar Peninsula was so different from where she was raised, but she quickly fell in love with the authentic beauty of the landscape and its inhabitants. Shiny Bits in Between is her love letter to Bolivar Peninsula.
