What’s on your nightstand right now?

Solea by Jean-Claude Izzo—it’s the third book in a really great Mediterranean noir trilogy.  I’m also reading The Dance Most of All by Jack Gilbert.

What book made the biggest impression on you as a kid?

Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises and Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin.

Tell us about your writing routine. Do you have a favorite time or place to write? 

I keep a running list of ideas on my phone, then I write at home or in the coffee shop down the street whenever I have time.

Who’s your muse? Who or what inspires you?

I write a lot about motherhood since having my daughter last year, and I’m also inspired by stories I hear on NPR.
