She lives in Colorado with her family.

Reviews

"A smart and powerful thriller."
--Chris Bohjalian, author of Midwives

"Arresting. . . . Astute. . . . Hyde is an author who should be with us for some time."
--Anita Shreve, The Washington Post Book World

"Darkly witty. . . . [The Abortionist's Daughter] accordions out into a suspense story and a comic noir, a novel of manners and an improbable romance. . . . Striking."
--Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air (NPR)

"In keeping with the truly best writers, Hyde examines both sides of the issue, but offers only questions that probe deep into the secret hearts of readers everywhere. For answers, they will have to turn to themselves. . . . Compelling and timely. . . . A must-read."
--The Denver Post
