I write every single day, first by hand and and then typing on my battered Mac. I've been writing all my life, though I didn't really get going on books until I was 29. I had to get fired from a few jobs first.

I received my MFA from Columbia University, and have won fellowships to the MacDowell Colony and the Sewanee Writers Conference. My three year old also recently awarded me the Macaroni Prize for Books With No Pictures.

My books have been translated into Spanish, German, and Turkish. (Turkish??) I read all of the time...about two to three books a week. I'll also read anything that looks interesting. Mark Twain, Hunger Games, Proust, 50 Shades of Whatever. I'm curious. Don't always make it past page 20. But I always get to 20.

I love that series. The truth is, the third book didn't get picked up by the publisher. But I am working on a third book because SO MANY people want to know how it ends! So it will come out in e-book format this year. Thanks Jessica!!(less)

I can't speak for all souther women, but I think a lot of us have a very distinct sense that we are FROM somewhere special. I don't like in the South now, but I will always be southern. I recently wrote an article for Garden and Gun about this. http://gardenandgun.com/article/city-...

"A topic that has been preoccupying me lately is what it means to be a San Franciscan. I know only a handful of natives—throughout the years, almost all of my friends have been transplants. Many are Southerners. We huddle together on New Year’s, eating hoppin’ John and collards; we put on hats and drink bourbon until we fall down on Derby Day. (Or we did, before the kids.) I’ve met people from New York, Chicago, Boston, New Jersey. But hardly any from San Francisco.

Yet my daughter screeched her way to life in a hospital room with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. I want her to have an identity. I, like most forty-year-olds with a wandering spirit, have weathered some storms. And always, in times of confusion, I’ve been able to crawl back to who I am: a Southerner. Rock-solid from-ness. I drive slowly and wave at people. I curl my hair before swimming. I believe manners are more important than money. When I meet another Southerner in this strange land, we lean slightly toward each other, like lost magnets."

thanks so much for asking!! KC(less)
