Jeff has a bachelor's degree in psychology and is near the completion of his master's degrees in criminology and sociology, both from Cleveland State University. Jeff currently resides in Cleveland, OH. "Jeff Kosiba uses brilliant, brutal description to force the point directly into the mind of the reader. He is unrelenting and unapologetic, like any great poet should be." --Azriel Johnson, chairman of Writing Knights Press, author of "Hellfire, Heavensent" "These poems speak of a relentless bravery. A staring down of demons kissed and cries for love. They are filled with dread and longing like flowers in a graveyard. They wear their hearts and rictus smiles on their sleeves. They have been to the abyss, yet still shine as lamps of truth." --Dan Smith, author of "Crooked River"
