My debut novel, The Second Home, will be published June, 2020, St. Martin's Press.
Our family has owned a home in Wellfleet since the 1890's. When my grandparents lived there, we visited for a few weeks each summer throughout my childhood. I still go back as often as I can.
As much as I love Cape Cod, I also enjoy living in the Midwest. I grew up in Milwaukee and now live in Madison, Wisconsin, with my husband John. We have two grown kids, Olivia and Tim. I'm a certified spin instructor, and I serve on the board of Wisconsin Conservation Voters.
In 2011, I received my PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I previously taught creative writing at Beloit College.
