Her critically acclaimed novels Border Child (April 2017, Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 2017) and The Iguana Tree (Hub City Press, 2012) have been compared to the writings of John Steinbeck and both books have been optioned for film. Border Child has been favorably reviewed by The San Francisco Chronicle, Charleston Magazine, The Charlotte Observer, The New York Journal of Books, Kirkus (starred review) among many others and was recently favorably mentioned in The New Yorker.

She recently received the Patricia Winn Award for Southern Literature.                               

The Power and Necessity of Empathy in Fiction Writing
Stone says “works of lasting, memorable fiction tap into the human condition. In order for a writer's work to do that, the writer must be able to view the world through a variety of lenses.” Workshop attendees will participate in several writing exercises during the session. She hopes some of those prompts will spark longer pieces of writing after participants leave the class.
