About the Author

Madisen Kuhn is a writer living in Charlottesville, Virginia. She likes to explore topics of identity, belonging, sexuality, and mental illness in her work. In 2015, she self-published Eighteen Years, a collection of over 200 poems. She is currently pursuing a BFA in Studio and Digital Arts.
Orion Carloto is a writer, poet, and influencer born and raised in a small town in Georgia. Popularly known on Youtube, Orion seeks to create a visual dream world for the lovers, the dreamers, and the brokenhearted. Growing up with her nose in a book and in her very own imagination, it came to no surprise that she wanted to write a book of her very own one day. Pulling inspiration from her personal adventures growing up, being in love, and the brutal pain of losing it all, she dug deep in her own woes and allowed the sorrows to fuel her writing. Orion now lives in New York with her feline lovers, Atticus and Lolita, and enjoys collecting mugs, baking sweets, sipping hot coffee, shooting with her film camera, French films, and the color yellow.


"In Almost Home, Madisen Kuhn is reminiscent of a young Mary Oliver: stunningly lyrical, brutally honest, and deliciously atmospheric."--Amanda Lovelace, bestselling author of the princess saves herself in this one
"Madisen's is a story of finding self-acceptance in the darkest of moments. Her work is refreshingly illustrative, surreal and still accessible, a wonderful mix of light and shade, honest, intimate, dramatic and ultimately moving.

Home is a place that Madisen is constantly trying to get to but can never quite reach. And maybe, that's ok."
--Iain S. Thomas, author of international bestseller I Wrote This For You and Every Word You Cannot Say
"Almost Home dives into a life of seeking and yearning: for home, and the true meaning of it. Written with honesty -- an act of bravery for those who are struggling to find the words for their longing and hurt."--Dawn Lanuza, author of The Last Time I'll Write About You
"In Almost Home, Madisen Kuhn's poetry is like the warm glow of a porch light left on to welcome you home--both illuminating in its truth, and reassuring in its message."--Cyrus Parker, author of masquerade
"Almost Home is carved and curated with the utmost honesty, bravery, and resilience. Madisen invites you into her world with open arms, and does not shy away from the realities and messiness that are so tethered to growing up and young adulthood, but are often swept under the rug. This collection is and will truly be a home for so many."--Alison Malee, author of This is the Journey
