Dustin Porta was born in rural Pennsylvania. He studied poetry in college but turned to Science Fiction instead. After a brief stint as a professional sailor he moved to the Gulf Coast where he now lives and works as an artist and writer. He still writes poetry and paints seascapes and marine life. When not working on his art, he is at the local marina fixing a leaky wooden sailboat.
Before leaving his home state, Dustin published his first book of poetry, Pennsylvania Music, a collection of poems and short stories about Pennsylvania’s historic Oil Region. The majority of Children of Atlas was written while living on a sailboat in the small, coastal community of Fairhope Alabama, a town known for its high concentration of writers and artists. His art and writing can be found all along the Alabama and Mississippi Gulf Coast as well as Northwest Pennsylvania.
Upcoming works include a second poetry chapbook focusing on the Gulf Coast, several collections of artwork and the next book in the Atlas Cycle.
