Barbara Monier has been writing since her earliest days when she composed in crayon on paper with extremely wide lines. She studied writing at Yale University and the University of Michigan. While at Michigan, she received the Avery and Jule Hopwood Prize. It was the highest prize awarded that year and the first in Michigan’s history for a piece written directly for the screen. The Rocky Orchard is the latest of her four novels. Pushing the River, You, In Your Green Shirt and A Little Birdie Told Me are her previous titles.
