Arin Greenwood is
a writer and former lawyer living just outside Washington, DC, with her
husband, Ray, their dog, Murray, and their cat, Derrick. Arin is an editor for the Huffington Post, covering
things both nerdy and weird—like Virginia cats running for US Senate—in and
around the nation’s capital. Her stories have appeared in Slate, the Washington City Paper, the American
Bar Association Journal, and dozens of other publications. Greenwood’s first novel,
Tropical Depression, was loosely based on the five-odd, sometimes very
odd, years she spent lawyering on a small island near Guam.
