ABOUT PAULA McLAIN

Paula McLain is the author of the New York Times bestselling novels, The Paris Wife (2011) and Circling the Sun (2015). She now introduces her latest title, Love and Ruin (2018).

Paula McLain was born in Fresno, California in 1965. After being abandoned by both parents, she and her two sisters became wards of the California Court System, moving in and out of various foster homes for the next fourteen years. When she aged out of the system, she supported herself by working as a nurses aid in a convalescent hospital, a pizza delivery girl, an auto-plant worker, a cocktail waitress–before discovering she could (and very much wanted to) write. She received her MFA in poetry from the University of Michigan in 1996.

The recipient of fellowships from Yaddo, The MacDowell Colony, the Cleveland Arts Prize, the Ohio Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, she is also the author of two collections of poetry; a memoir, Like Family, Growing up in Other People’s Houses (2003); and a first novel, A Ticket to Ride (2009). She lives with her family in Cleveland.
