3 Fun Facts

1. When I was growing up in Tennessee, at different times I wanted to be a country singer, a magician, an actress, and an author.
2. I attended film school at the University of Southern California, and worked in Hollywood for two years before pursuing a career as an author.
3. I moved to Sydney, Australia, for graduate school. At the time, I’d never been to Australia and didn’t know anyone who lived there. But years later, after I was living in New York, I met and married a Sydney native who moved to NYC at the same time as me.
