Stephanie Caye grew up in Michigan wanting to be a famed, reclusive novelist.

Then she moved to Texas, got a job in tech, started volunteering with shelter cats and dropped both “famed” and“reclusive” from her childhood dream.

She now lives in Montreal--happy to have four seasons again--still working in tech, still volunteering with cats, and still writing.

A former recipient of a University of Michigan Hopwood award, she recently published her first novel, The Flaws of Gravity.
