Columbia MFA graduate and Edward Albee Fellow, Natalie Harnett, grew up in Queens, NY, and currently lives on Long Island with her family. She spent most of her childhood vacations visiting her grandfather’s home in the Wayne County region of Pennsylvania, and while researching that area she learned of the devastating coal mine fire that took place in the nearby city of Carbondale. The Hollow Ground, her debut novel, tells the story not only of that fire but of one family’s struggle to survive.
