About Forbes

Edith Forbes grew up on a family ranch in Wyoming. She graduated from Stanford University with a degree in English, which served to launch her on a career in computer programming. When she found herself trying to write poetry in Pascal, she abandoned computers in favor of less reliably logical pursuits, including farming, house renovation, and writing. Her primary interest is fiction, but she also has tried her hand at essays, poetry, screenplays, and a cookbook. Her four novels were published by Seal Press in Seattle. For many years, she has lived on a small farm in Vermont, where she can see from her office window that the cows have gone through a fence.
