Author's Bio

I grew up in the Twin Cities and received my MFA in fiction from Washington University in Saint Louis. I recently completed my doctorate in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Southern California. I’m currently revising my first novel entitled "History of Wolves," and I am also working on a study of simultaneity in narrative, called "The Usual Things in Unusual Places." I live with my husband in Ithaca, New York.
