Erin McGraw
is the author of two works of fiction, Bodies at Sea (1989) and Lies of the Saints (1996), which was listed as a Notable Book for 1996 by The New York Times. Kirkus Reviews said that her first collection displayed "a sure hand and an even voice busily at work documenting the struggles of regular people trying to lead ordinary lives. At her best, McGraw encourages us to see sainthood in its human context, relevant to the most mundane experiences...Without rancor, these poignant moral tales gently go beyond most family fiction, they would merit our attention even if that were their only distinction." She is presently an associate professor in the Department of English at the University of Cincinnati.   [extracted from 1999 brochure]
