Meet the Author

Descended from Norwegian plumbers on one side, and bohemian Russian aristocrats on the other, Stephanie Barbé Hammer wrote her first poem at 6 and has never stopped loving poems. She has published short fiction and poetry in Mosaic, The Bellevue Literary Review, Pearl, NYCBigCityLit, Rhapsoidia, CRATE, and the Hayden's Ferry Review among other places. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize 4 times - most recently, in 2013, for her non-fiction work on converting to Judaism and her relationship with French. Her prose poem chapbook, Sex with Buildings, was published with Dancing Girl Press in May 2012. She is the recent recipient of an MFA from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts and she is currently working on a series of novels about a secret branch of Anabaptists who use puppets for their rituals. A former New Yorker, Stephanie divides her time between Los Angeles, California and Coupevillle, Washington. She lives with her husband, Larry Behrendt, at least 2 unfinished knitting projects, and a bunch of cookbooks whose covers she has never cracked.
