About meI am a widely published short story writer and author of ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF MARRIAGE, my first book-length collection. I have been a high school and college English teacher, interned in a state hospital while I trained as a family therapist, and served on a US Congressman's Washington staff. I live on Capitol Hill, always a good source of material.

About my libraryIt would be hard for a stranger to tell which was the library in our house because there are overflowing shelves of books in four of the rooms. These books are half American history and biographies and half fiction. No self-help; we can't seem to help ourselves.
My library has collections of my writer-models: Gail Godwin, Susan Shreve, Anita Shreve, Hilma Wolitzer and Ann Tyler, established writers. I also read books that have just come on the market, Anne Korkeakivi's THE UNEXTECTED GUEST, and PURE by Andrew Miller.
