After twenty years in the work force, Stephanie Larkin rekindled her love of writing when she returned to college in mid-life to earn her bachelor's degree. A true "late bloomer," she realized that what she really wanted to do with her life was to write nonfiction books.
She put her newly honed writing skills to use in recounting her experience with refugee resettlement in "Resettled." Her book, "Displaced: A Memoir," centers on a life-changing decade of her own. "Grief Country" explores theories of grief from Sigmund Freud to the present day along with her personal story. "Introduction to Chizigula," a phrasebook for an endangered African Bantu language (co-authored with Dadiri Nuro) is her newest release.
As a public speaker, she has shared her experience as a caregiver for a parent with Alzheimer's disease.
Stephanie lives in the Pacific Northwest. She is currently working on writing the history of an African Bantu tribe in their native language.
