MAUD NEWTON grew up in Miami, Florida and has scandalized her southern parents by moving north of the Mason-Dixon line. She's lived in Brooklyn for the last four years. Her short fiction and nonfiction appears in Mr. Beller's Neighborhood, Story South and Eyeshot and elsewhere, and is forthcoming in Swink online. She's working on a novel about fundamentalist Christians in 1980's Miami. You can visit her at MaudNewton.com.

Not that you'd ever miss Cupcake for the world, but my birthday is the day before, so I'm sure you'll come and say hello.
