A Florida mystery novelist who believes in fun.

Background Information

After writing two very serious literary novels, I decided that life was a morbid adventure and it was time to have fun. So, I took the only Creative Writing Class that Carl Hiaasen ever taught. Now, the NEW YORK TIMES says I went from “High-minded literary novels” to being “The good student who had finally ventured out to a frat party*”

I am a literary writer gone wrong.



Birth Place
Toledo, OH USA

The author of MURDER AT THE BAD GIRL'S BAR AND GRILL (forthcoming June 2008 from Shaye Areheart/ Random House), WHALE SEASON (Shaye Areheart/ Random House), IN THE COMPANY OF ANGELS (Theia/Hyperion), and THEATER OF THE STARS (Theia/Hyperion). Named “Outstanding Southern Artist” by The Southern Arts Federation, her work has been translated into several languages and offered by The Literary Guild, Doubleday Book Club, and Quality Paperback Book Club.

Short stories have appeared in many publications including One Story, Zoetrope ASE, and Verb. Her story “Jubilation, Florida” was selected for National Public Radio’s “Selected Shorts,” and later recorded by actress Joanne Woodward for the NPR CD Travel Tales, and included in NEW STORIES FROM THE SOUTH: BEST OF 2006 (Algonquin Books).

I'm working on the film version of WHALE SEASON along with Actor/Singer Dwight Yoakam.

I have been the recipient of a Bush Artist Fellowship in Literature, an NEA Inter-Arts grant, the Heekin Group Foundation’s James Fellowship for the Novel, both a Florida and Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship in fiction, two Jerome Travel Study Grants, and a Jewish Arts Endowment Fellowship.
