About Sally Pfoutz

I have published two novels: the YA, Missing Person (hard cover edition Viking 1993) and Authors Guild Back in Print paperback edition (iUniverse 2009);and Red-tail, an original paperback edition 2003). My first book of poetry, “Tree and Shadow,” was issued by Wild Leaf Press in 2010. I am a regular contributor to élan magazine, for which I have written over 25 personal essays and 51 artist profiles. My work has also appeared in The Washington Post, Country Magazine, the anthology Grace & Gravity, and various literary magazines including: Phoebe, Fugue, New Collage and Hot Metal Bridge. My play, "Something to Hold Onto" was performed by Sterling Playmakers in 2010.
I live on a farm near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with my husband Mark, three dogs, three horses, and six barn kitties. Besides being a constant gardener I am reading all the time and writing quite a bit. The cover art for the Smashwords edition of Red-tail is a detail from a painting by my daughter Erin. The cover photo for Dying to Live shows Levi's actual Amish clothing which he has kept all these years.
