I was born in Paris, France, and moved to the United States at the age of 13. I’ve amassed several degrees in literature and writing around the San Francisco Bay Area (Stanford University, Mills College, UC Davis), where I still live with one scientist husband and two elderly half-Siamese cats who spend all day following sunbeams around the house. My novel, 13 rue Thérèse, was released by Little, Brown in February 2011. Foreign rights have been sold to the UK, Italy, Russia, Poland, France. Another novel, In the Red, is also forthcoming from Little, Brown in September 2014. I am, of course, trying to write yet another novel and I have a bunch of pages but I DON’T KNOW WHAT ORDER THEY GO IN. Please send hugs/chocolate/narcotics.
