I was raised in Massachusetts, then drifted around from here to there until I finally came to rest in Philadelphia. I teach American literature at Bryn Mawr College, and for fun I read, write, read, cook, read, walk all over my beautiful and dirty city, read . . . THE RIVER OF NO RETURN is my first novel, and the experience of writing it was so overwhelmingly fun that I'm roaring ahead on the sequel.

I’ve been asked many times about how old I was when I knew I was a writer. I don’t think I accepted that I was a writer of fiction until I was 39, the year I started The River of No Return. But I have always been fascinated by fiction, by storytelling, by the fine line between truth and fiction. Many of my earliest memories are, in one way or another, about the power of fiction.

“I am not interested in your fine calibrations of empathy or your great mission to protect the river of history. I just to live my own life, and I want to spend it having my own private fucked-up little emotions.”
Bee Ridgway, The River of No Return

“Human emotion. Millions of souls, together they make the mood of a certain time. It doesn’t matter that they disagree, that they hate, that they fight. All together they create it, this thing. This epoch. Times of war. Times of famine. Times of wealth and happiness. The mood of an era. What is stronger than that?”
Bee Ridgway, The River of No Return

“No man is a man until he is made weak by a woman.”
Bee Ridgway, The River of No Return

Murissa Thanks for befriending me!
I really enjoyed The River of No Return (looking forward to the sequel) and am venturing on writing my own version of a time travel novel for NaNoWriMo.

This will be my 3rd attempt at a novel, although I am much more prepared than any previous go at it.

Any advice?

Murissa

Robin Hi, Bee, thanks for your friendship. I see we both like Ursula K. LeGuin. I read a bunch of her stuff as a kid, and developed a long-lived respect for her writing. Do you read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy books? What else do you like?


Kimberly Thank you for adding me as a friend Bee!
