Spring Warren

A graduate of Black Hills State College in Spearfish, South Dakota with a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of California, Davis, Spring Warren is a longtime painter and furniture maker and an award-winning writer. Her novel TURPENTINE, a sweeping saga of the western frontier in the 1870s, won the bronze medal in ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year for Historic Fiction. In the summer of 2008, Warren decided that she would plow up her family’s Davis, California yard, create a garden and consume at least 75% of her food from what she grew. The result: THE QUARTER-ACRE FARM, a spirited narrative about family, food, and the incredible gratification that accompanies self-sufficiency, peppered with historical useful gardening advice and delicious, easy-to-follow and healthy recipes. Warren is now working on a novel about xenophobia in the American heartland in the interwar period.
