Stevie Z Fischer writes about the dynamics of people, nature, and power in small-town New England. Her first novel, River Rules, looks at how everyday heroes can be forged as lives are changed by forces seemingly beyond our control. Stevie's focus on the bonds of friendship, love of nature, and refusal to be marginalized shines through in River Rules. Although she has worked in jobs ranging from cheese slicing to strategic analysis, nothing has been so transformational as paying attention, walking her dog, and never meeting a stranger. Stevie teaches writing and lives in Connecticut.
