Maura Weiler, AM'93
Author

From our pages, May–June/15: "Everything changed for Dorie McKenna, the protagonist of Maura Weiler’s debut novel, when she made two startling discoveries: her biological father was a famous artist, and she was separated at birth from a twin sister, Catherine Wagner, who inherited their father’s talents. Dorie, a tabloid journalist, is eager to share Catherine’s paintings with the world. But as a cloistered nun, Catherine sn’t interested. Dorie’s quest takes her undercover in Catherine’s convent—and where the sisters clash over the meaning and purpose of art."
