Miriam Fitting is originally from New York, but she has made her home on the West Coast for the last decade and so feels entirely at home or out of place in each place, depending on her mood. She received an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Washington, Seattle, and has published fiction, translations, and nonfiction through a variety of literary journals and small presses including The Indiana Review, Optimism, and Bohemian Ventures. She is currently using the break between drafts of her novel-in-progress, The Prague Moment, to write a collection of linked stories tentatively titled Why I Don't Have A Boyfriend. She likes crusty bread and jasmine green tea very much, though not together, and hates okra because of the way the seeds slither from the pulp when you bite in.
