The Author


Jill Coupe’s first job was gathering (collating) in her father’s printing plant in Knoxville, Tennessee, in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. A former librarian at Johns Hopkins University, she has an MFA in Fiction from Warren Wilson College, in the heart of the Blue Ridge. The Southern Appalachians always feel like home to her, but so does Baltimore, where she’s hard at work on her next novel, an excerpt from which has been published in The Summerset Review.

  1. JILL, so glad to hear you have written this book. Look forward to reading it. I was thinking
    about you recently and was wondering what had become of you. So glad to know where you
    are. Julie let us know. Would like to hear from you. Your old neighbor and classmate,
    Susan McDonald Overton
