Mimi Schwartz is the author of ten books, including the prize-winning, Good Neighbors, Bad Times, Echoes of My Father’s German Village, hailed as “utterly riveting”… ”important for both Jews and Christians to read…a template for all who wish to confront the mysteries of goodness”. Her essay collection, Thoughts from a Queen-Sized Bed, captures “the stuff of a real marriage, its wrangling and its humor”; and Writing True, the Art & Craft of Creative Nonfiction (co-authored with Sondra Perl), is regularly called “the best book around for writers of creative nonfiction.”

Her short work has appeared in the New York Times, Creative Nonfiction, Missouri Review, Agni, Tikkun, Christian Science Monitor, Calyx, Fourth Genre and the Writer’s Chronicle, among others, and six essays have been Notables in Best American Essays.  Schwartz is Professor Emerita at Richard Stockton College and lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
