Lorraine Sweger-Perez lives in Queens New York. Her debut publication, Gypsy Lady, is a piece from her current series of short creative nonfiction stories. It is a result of her determination to get out of the apartment, and observe city life. She was born in New York but grew up in Colorado and returned home twelve years ago. She is currently enrolled at LaGuardia Community College and will graduate with a Creative Writing degree in fall of 2013. After graduation, she plans to attend Brooklyn College where she will work on her BFA in creative writing.
