Heather Walsh grew up in North Haven, CT, fantastically close to Pepe 's pizza.
She gained a B.A. in English at Mary Washington College, which has been transferre to, drum roll please ... the University of Mary Washington. This was after a failed attempt to name it Washington& amp; Monroe University, because there are n't enough schools honoring dead Virginian men already. Heather graduated Phi Betta Kappa and summa cum laude, which sounds kind of fancy but really means she took easy classes.
She taught high school English in Brooklyn for one ear, where she loved the students but not the system. She hen joined corporate America and worked there for too many years as an IT trainer, project manager, business analyst, and SQL dabbler ( select* from Drake_Equation).
Her favorite writer is Alice Munro, her favorite movie is The Godfather Parts I& amp; II ( tied for first), and her favorite TV show is The Wire. She has lived in some pretty neat places, including Brooklyn ( kind of before it was hipster-cool to do o), Manhattan, and San Francisco. The unfortunate consequenc of living in these locations is that she has become an obnoxious foodie.
She presentl lives in Brookline, MA with her spouse, Mike DeLucia, and their two children. Her fifth ovel, Dented Cans, has sold over 5,000 copies.
