Copper Crown was selected for the Discover Great New Writers series by Barnes and Noble and has been taught in Women's Studies courses at universities throughout the United States. The film option to The Unfastened Heart sold at auction to Columbia Pictures. Both novels were selections of the Literary Guild.

She graduated from Dartmouth College with her B.A. in English literature, magna cum laude, and obtained her MFA in English literature with highest honors from the writers' workshop at the University of California, Irvine.

She is currently at work on her third novel.
