Virginia, USA

I'm a writer of fiction (3 novels, House & Home, A Simple Thing, and Leaving Haven) and non-fiction (for a wide variety of newspapers and magazines) and teacher (formerly an adjunct at American University, now happily teaching creative writing to kids). Working out keeps me sane; spending lots of time outdoors keeps me even saner. I have two really interesting daughters, a patient husband, and a cat who adores me.
