Short biography
Black was born in West Long Branch, New Jersey[2] in 1971, and during her early years her family lived in a "decrepit Victorian house."[3] Black graduated with a B.A. in English from The College of New Jersey in 1994. She worked as a production editor on medical journals including The Journal of Pain while studying at Rutgers University. She considered becoming a librarian as a backup career, but writing drew her away.
She married her high school sweetheart, Theo Black, himself an accomplished illustrator and web designer, in 1999.[2]
As of 2008, Black resides in Amherst, Massachusetts.[4]
