Karen Brown

On the family homestead by the sea where she grew up, Martha Mary saw ghosts. As a young woman, she hopes to distance herself from those spirits by escaping to an inland college town. There, she is absorbed by a budding romance, relieved by separation from an unstable sister, and disinterested in the flyers seeking information about a young woman who's disappeared-until one Indian summer afternoon when the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a down coat, her hair coated with ice.

Karen Brown 's Little Sinners and Other Stories was named a Best Book of 2012 by Publisher's Weekly; her previous collection, Pins and Needles received AWP's Grace Paley Prize for Short Fiction; and her first novel, The Longings of Wayward Girls, was published in 2013 by Washington Square Press to rave reviews. Her work has been featured in The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, Best American Short Stories, The New York Times, and Good Housekeeping . She teaches creative writing and literature at the University of South Florida.
