Megan Crane is a New Jersey native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow audiences with her singing voice required a back up plan. Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable multi-media artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons, she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with a dog, a cat, two crazy kittens, and an artist named Jeff. She is still plotting her Broadway debut.
My phenomenal agent, Julie Barer, agreed to come on my blog and answer some questions about her job, whether or not she's Miss Snark, etc. Read it all here!
Awesome YA author E. Lockhart and I talk about our experiences at Vassar, adventures in grad school, and the Pink Lady/Grey lady divide at popular book site Beatrice.
