Mignon Ariel King was born in Boston’s City Hospital in 1964. Despite justifiable rumors to the contrary, the artist graduated from Girl’s Latin School/Boston Latin Academy. She holds a Master of Arts in English degree from Simmons College (for women). King is the publisher of Hidden Charm Press (HCP), the sister press of the online journal MoJo! and of Tell-Tale Chapbooks
Ms. King has been reading at open mics since 1998, sometimes singing Rock tunes. Her autobiographical pentalogy (written in three genres from 1996-2010) is based on a lifetime spent in Greater Boston as a third-generation New Englander and former teacher.

Whew! Okay, I’m done referring to myself in third person, so FYI:
My first name is pronounced: MIN-yin, as in dominion. It’s German. It means “favorite.” Kindly don’t tell me what it means in French; I’m a classically-trained scholar with two Master’s degrees. I know how to google–and this ain’t Paris! (No fooling. People have sent me “helpful” e-mails.)
My middle name is “Ariel” –after an arguably androgynous sprite from Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
