I am the author of the novel JUNO'S DAUGHTERS. My essays and short fiction have been published in literary magazines, Poets and Writers and On the Issues Magazine. In addition to writing, I have a commitment to public health. I am the Associate Director of the Master of Public Health program at the University of Missouri and I lead an annual study abroad in community health in Ghana, West Africa. I'm always looking for ways to bring those two careers together--and sometimes I even find them!

I expected to love this book, which can be dangerous, but often found myself thinking that it was just as good as I had hoped it would be. It's a terrific book for anyone who is wondering what the mysterious "voice" thing is in fiction. My only quibb ...more

I enjoyed this book so much that I went to the library and checked out something else by Cathleen Schine almost immediately, which I rarely do. Very fun--strong narrative voice, great sense of humor.
