About the Author
Carol Siri Johnson grew up in Lowville, east of Lake Ontario and west of the Adirondacks. For undergraduate school she went to Mount Holyoke, a women's college in central Massachusetts. Then she moved to Brooklyn where she worked as a real estate agent. After starting her own business (“Greenwood Heights Realty”), she tired of the field and returned to school, graduating with a Ph.D. in English Literature from The Graduate Center of the City of New York in 1995. After working as a technical writer in the computer industry for seven years, she returned to academia and is now an associate professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology. She has one daughter and has a tendency to get really cranky, so watch out.
