Bio and Sample Work

Corrigan lives in Myrtle Grove, FL. She’s worked in the affordable housing industry since 2010. Before that, she did stints as a social media specialist, researcher, web content writer, planning and zoning administrative assistant, tech support manager, technical writer, managing editor, teaching fellow, tutor, and as banner maker/ground crew at an aerial banner towing company. Masthead credits include Western Humanities Review, Girls with Insurance, and Otis Nebula, where she currently serves as assistant editor.

Corrigan’s debut novel, Mitigating Circumstances, an environmental mystery set in Gulf Breeze, FL, was published by Five Star/Cengage in January 2014. Kirkus Reviews called it “an enjoyable read with strong, likable women holding center stage. Think Stephanie Plum without the wackiness” and suggested it for “fans of light mysteries and strong women.”

She has several other novels in various stages of completion, including a family saga and an homage to Cold Comfort Farm set at a software company. Shorter works have appeared widely in print and online since the 1990s. Links to some recent examples and old favorites appear below.
