A writing and literature instructor, she lives with her husband and son and a small clutch of animals on an old New Hampshire hilltop farm. Spindlefish and Stars is her first novel.

Reviews
* "An epic tale of abandonment, travel, secrets, family, and the meaning of art.... Exquisite in detail.... A tapestry, both humble and rich."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "A lyrical debut exploring the nature of destiny and sacrifice.... The narrative voice...makes this enchanting story feel like an all-new myth built from classic material."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Expertly written, full of beautiful imagery and elements of Greek mythology.... An engaging and inventive novel."--School Library Journal
* "Readers familiar with Greek myth will take special pleasure in the slantwise view Andrews conjures.... The tapestry metaphor also offers a longer, measured view of the unavoidability of pain and the beauty of kindness as well as commentary on the persistence of powerful stories through art."--BCCB, starred review
* "Bewitching, beautiful, and bewildering.... Immensely satisfying."--Booklist, starred review
"Both mysterious and evocative.... A dreamy, immersive story that raises questions aboutthe power of art and the value of humansuffering."--The Horn Book
