Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood grew up on Long Island and moved to New York City at seventeen. She currently lives in Manhattan with her two children, who are both remarkable even by New York standards.

This is her first novel, but Maryrose also writes for the theatre and film. Her work as a lyricist and librettist has won prestigious awards. These are nice, but are often presented at award ceremonies, for which it is very, very difficult to choose an outfit.

Maryrose has a cat but secretly prefers dogs, and does not ride her bike as often as she would like. She strives to live with the appropriate mix of coolness and whimsy, and suspects this may in fact be the golden road to happiness. She will let you know how it turns out.
