About the author: Julie Chibbaro grew up in New York City wondering how so many people could live together without infecting one another with mortal diseases.

Returning to New York, she decided to create her own fictional characters instead of playing them. Julie Chibbaro is the author of REDEMPTION, which won a 2005 American Book Award. Julie teaches fiction and creative writing in New York. .
