Author's Bio

I love true stories told with the verve and passion of fiction. I also love British literature and history. Put those things together, and you get my two books of creative nonfiction: An Africa in Imperial London: The Indomitable Life of A.B.C. Merriman-Labor and The Virginia Woolf Writers’ Workshop.
