While Frances O’Roark Dowell is best known for her award-winning novels, she also hosts the popular “Off-Kilter Quilt” podcast, where she talks about her latest quilt projects with friends and fellow quilters around the globe. Her own little corner of the globe is Durham, North Carolina, where she lives with her husband, two sons, and a dog named Travis.
Her books include Dovey Coe, which won the Edgar Award and the William Allen White Children’s Book Award; Where I’d Like to Be; the bestselling Secret Language of Girls trilogy; Chicken Boy; Shooting the Moon, which received a Christopher Award; the Phineas L. MacGuire series; Falling In; The Second Life of Abigail Walker; Anybody Shining; the teen novel, Ten Miles Past Normal; and the new Sam the Man series for younger readers. Her most recent book — her first for adult readers — is the quilting novel Birds in the Air.
