M. A. Harper drew pictures all during her childhood and was pretty good at it, but none of them seemed complete without a caption. When she went to Tulane University to study art, her professors praised her technical ability but labeled her an "illustrator". Wrong. She was really a novelist. Her books have been named to the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program as well as the BookSense '76 list, and she's the author of the online FAINT GLOW BLOG as well.

Wodehouse's England of the 1920's, where I'd work in a little London bookstore by day and go out to hear American jazz by night, and wear flapper outfits and drink gin fizzes. And laugh at everything, all the time. Then come home to my flat and my cat.(less)

Sometimes I wonder about trivial stuff, like why must we suffer occasional hangnails? Or things somewhat more important: do crows and blue jays have a sense of smell, or what did the elderly of 1137 do to get around before knee replacement surgery or even wheelchairs were options? I don't know about the birds, but the people probably just died before getting old; that'd pretty much solve that p... Read more of this blog post »

“To paraphrase the disappeared Jimmy Hoffa, who certainly didn’t go down in history for his foolish worries: “Eighty-five percent of what you worry about won’t ever come to pass. And you can always deal with that other fifteen percent.” Of course, look what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far

“Let beloved idiots ruin their own lives, if that’s what they’re dead set on doing, with no attempt whatsoever at control or behavior modification from you.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far

“That’s all they discussed, those neighbors of my mother’s: who had died; who was just about to drop dead; who was getting married to whom, so that they could have a miserable life together and then die.”
M.A. Harper, The Worst Day Of My Life, So Far
