Maryrose Larkin lives in Tucson, AZ. She is the author of several books, including The Identification of Ghosts (Chax Press), The Book of Ocean (ie press) and The Name of this intersection is Frost (shearsman). Maryrose keeps her friends close and her muses closer. You can write her at

Anyone who makes a donation gets copies of whatever I have on hand when the donation is received and is added to our mailing list for future books. If you want to make sure you receive a particular title or would prefer not to receive additional titles, just send me a note at saying so!
