I'm the author of Proof of Heaven (William Morrow, 2011) and Proof of Angels (William Morrow, 2014), which was a Target Book pick. My articles, blogs, and essays have been featured in several national magazines, on the radio, and on national television.  I used to teach writing and literature at the University of Cincinnati, and now teach storytelling, writing, and Design Thinking for Xavier University.

I am married to Greg Hackett and I'm the proud the mother of two children. I still live in Cincinnati--but always have my eyes on place by the beach.
