New York Times Bestselling Author

Class of 1993

“I’d always loved books. In my classes as an English major at Carolina, however, I learned to really understand the layers of meaning in the works I studied. In doing so, I also gained a greater understanding of what it was that made those words speak to me. Both of these things informed me as not only a reader, but a writer, and I continue to use them in my own work to this day.”
