But the author insists the most interesting thing about her is "what's hap- pening in my imagination. "I've heard there is an old Chinese curse that goes like this: 2Vlay you live in interesting times.' The reason it's a curse is that it's truly not such a bad thing to have a boring life. Boring on the outside, that is. For writers -- and readers, too -- there's al- ways something interest- ing going on inside." A former server, dish- washer, bookstore clerk, advertising "traffic coor- dinator" and copywriter, the British-born Fletcher has lived in several of the United States and cur- rently calls Oregon home. For a time, she taught at Vermont College's MFA in Writing for Chil- dren program. Fletcher was born in Birmingham, England, and studied at the University of York and the University of East Auglia.
