Welcome to my web page.  I'm the author of Jane, a contemporary retelling of the classic novel Jane Eyre, due out from Poppy in October 2010.  I'm also a poet, an editor, and an Associate Professor of English at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia.

Here are a few things to know about me:
  • I was born in North Merrick, NY, and though I've lived many places since then, I will always be a New Yorker at heart.  
  • I've been writing stories and poems ever since I could hold a pen.  
  • I started out majoring in art but soon realized my talents lay elsewhere.  But I'm still a champion doodler.
  • My sister is a roller derby queen and one of my best friends.
  • Jane Eyre is my favorite novel of all times, with Wuthering Heights a close second.
  • I love rock and roll, so put another dime in the  juke box, baby. (Apologies to Joan Jett.)
  • I'm the mother of two teenage sons.  My older son, Eli St. Amant, is a member of the hot new rave rap band Split Genetics.  
  • My younger son Noah is pretty great too, and after several summers at zoo camp is an experienced handler of rabbits and hedgehogs.   He hopes to graduate to owls.
  • I teach creative writing, freshman composition, and literature at St. Joe's.  
  • My favorite color is electric blue.  
  • I'm seriously addicted to Facebook.
  • I love to cook, especially Italian food.  
  • I'm mom to two lab mix dogs--Reuben and Ophelia--and a rescued guinea pig, Bartleby.
  • I play acoustic guitar (badly) and attend way too many rock concerts.
  • I met my husband at the University of New Hampshire where we both lived in a dorm for the creative arts.
  • I'm secretly shy but I work hard to hide it.
  • When I was 22, I backpacked solo around Europe and had all kinds of fun and misadventures.
  • In August, I was Hot Blogger of the Month at agent Bree Ogden's This Literary Life Blog.  Here's a link.
  • In high school I wrote a rock opera about the tragic love between  punk rocker Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungeon.
  • My current favorite t.v. show is Glee.   Old favorites are Northern Exposure, Six Feet Under, The West Wing, and Moonlighting.
  • Jane has a Facebook page of its own, and I hope you'll consider "liking" it.  Here's a link.
  • Coffee, dark chocolate, Bruce Springsteen, thunderstorms, exploring cities I've never been to before: these are a few of my favorite things.
