Bio: Catie Jarvis is an author of fiction, as well as a yoga instructor, a competitive gymnastics coach, an English and writing professor, a surfer, and a mom. She received her B.A. in writing from Ithaca College, and her M.F.A. in creative writing from the California College of the Arts.
She grew up on a lake in northern New Jersey and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, her daughter Skywalker and lots of surfboards. She finds the world to be a strange place and loves writing that examines the ambiguity of “reality.”
Jarvis’s debut novel, The Peacock Room, tells the story of a young man with a mysterious medical condition, and the frustrated musical savant who falls in love with him. Her most recent short stories have been included in the Made in L.A. Anthology. She is currently at work on two novels and a screenplay. Find more about the author and her writing at catiejarvis.com.
