Girlwonders grew up in snowy Arizona, spent five years in the Windy City, and now lives in Cedar Falls. Her nonfiction thinks it’s fabulism and her fiction thinks it’s true, a quandary that landed her at Clarion UCSD in summer 2011. (For her Clarionblogging of those six weeks, begin here.) She currently serves as an Assistant Professor at the University of Northern Iowa. She is not as superheroic as advertised.
