Miriam Nesset currently lives in Maine, making occasional trips to London where her
daughter lives. She is originally from Wisconsin and received her Masters in Landscape
Architecture from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in1985. Following graduation, she
initiated redevelopment programs in Indiana and Virginia then worked as an urban planning
consultant for several years in Florida. In 1999 she moved back to Wisconsin where she owned
and operated an antiques shop for five years. In 2005 she sold her business and bought a farm
house in rural Georgia. There she had space at a designer mall, sold pecans from her trees and
otherwise devoted her time to writing. Answering a life-long desire to live in New England or
Nova Scotia, in 2009 she moved to Maine where she continues to write, inspired by its scenic
beauty and the smell of the ocean.
