I grew up in the D.C. area. I went to the University of Virginia for my BA, and then to law school at the University of Connecticut. After three disgruntled years getting my JD, I decided to go back for an MFA in creative writing. It took six years to get my MFA from George Mason University because I kept having kids. Now, I live in Northern Virginia (or Narnia, as my high school friend called it) with my husband, children, and beagle. I read, write, and enjoy the community of readers and writers that I met through my MFA program. I hope to expand that community through this blog and podcast.
