Biography:

Voigt was born in Boston, Massachusetts and grew up in Connecticut. For many years, she lived in Maryland and taught school, and now she lives in Maine. She loves to write. She says that she begins a book with a character and a slight plot, and after that, she begins to see the theme.

“I write…because I want to write. I don’t consider myself a good storyteller, and I have no burning stories to tell. I have no solutions to the problems of the world. I think there are solutions for individual people and individual circumstances. My writing is my way of saying, ‘Have you looked at this way?’ I do it. I enjoy it.

“It’s a razzle-dazzle kind of fun to have a story come out and do well. That’s wonderful. But it’s only when you’re up there working when it’s actually real: that’s what the whole thing is rooted in, and that’s the only thing that actually counts.”
