Virginia Slachman spent many years as an award-winning poet and college professor before launching into a career as a memoirist and novelist. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, she traveled to Los Angeles and then Aspen following college to discover life outside her staid Midwest roots. Poetry led to Ph.D. studies at the University of Cincinnati and a long, successful career in the college classroom teaching literature and writing.When news broke of the Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans facing bouts of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Slachman was moved to write of her own family’s struggles with PTSD.

The resulting memoir, Many Brave Hearts, has been described as “a narrative powerfully representative of a collective American experience.”Virginia also works with retired thoroughbred racehorses. Her love of murder mysteries, research, and horses combine in her debut novel, The Lost Ode, first in her mystery series featuring literary scholar and amateur sleuth Julia and Gray Burke, owner of Brookfield Stud farm. The novel weaves together a behind-the-scenes look at breeding and racing thoroughbreds in Kentucky Bluegrass Country with murder, horse racing, and the search for a lost fortune.
