About

I live and write in Washington, D.C., my favorite city in the world!

I publish short stories (occasionally). I’m working on a novel set in Civil War Washington. I blog for Weightless Books. I write occasional book reviews for Washington Independent Review of Books. For two years, I was the Potomac Review Literary Journal’s blogmaster.

More importantly, I fell in love with The Police’s Zenyatta Mondatta and Frank Herbert’s Dune in the same year. Both feature Sting (sorta). Coincidence? I think not. One thing led to another, and now I believe I will win the lotto. Not the Powerball jackpot or anything. Just a million dollars. There’s no arguing with me.

When I sleep, I dream of kittens.

Thanks!

    Hi Andrea- Loved stumbling upon your piece on the Washington Arsenal Explosion–thanks for writing up a great account of the event, with great photos, too. And thanks for referencing my dad’s book!

      Ms. Voorheis – Thanks so much for the comment and the contact! I love your Dad’s book, and your dedication to its publication is heartwarming. I meant to email you right after I read the book to tell you how much I like it, but time got away from me. You helped deliver an amazing piece of history to the world. Thank you so much!

    Dear Andrea, I just loved your story in the latest Lady Churchill’s. It was soooooo good. I don’t often write fan letters, but I had to write and tell you that. — Jessy Randall

    I wanted to thank you for being involved in my blog and my life. Friends talk to you from time to time. Real friends read your writing. You’re a real friend.

      Oh no. We have to read each other’s writing?!? No way are you going to survive “The Getaway.” : )

        No, we don’t have to. We could be “just friends” and not “real friends.” Except I do read your writing and enjoy it. And always have. The goat story remains stuck in my mind in a way that is not, well, not completely disturbing.

        Bring on “The Getaway!”
