Author's Bio

Cheryl Walsh earned a master’s degree in history at Cornell University and then followed the tug of fabrication to take her M.F.A. in fiction writing at Virginia Commonwealth University. In her former life as a scholar, she published articles in the peer-reviewed journals Victorian Poetry, the Journal of British Studies, and English Language Notes. More recently, her creative work has appeared in the anthology Imagination and Place: Cartography, the audio magazine The Drum, and such literary magazines as Confrontation, Cicada, and The MacGuffin, among others. She has been awarded writing residencies with the Djerassi Resident Artists Program and Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts. A native Michigander and graduate of Michigan State University, she has traded in lake-effect snow squalls for prairie blizzards and now lives in Iowa City, where she shares a 100-year-old house with her husband, Australian photographer Bruce Hart.
