Biography: I’m an American living in Kiltumper in the west of Ireland with Irish novelist, Niall Williams. At various times I’ve been a houseplant doctor for Neiman Marcus, a copyeditor for ‘The American Journal of Medicine’, an administrator of writing workshops, founder of an artist cooperative where I sold my paintings, and a classical homeopath. Once upon a time, my children and Niall and I travelled around the world for 9 months. I wrote about it in a travel memoir, So Many Miles to Paradise.
