About the Author

Luellen Fletcher grew up in rural Wisconsin and currently lives in Philadelphia, PA.
When friends in Tucson tried to tell her about the internet in the early 1990s, she laughed, “Information Superhighway? You’ve got to be kidding me.”
Soon after she wrote a collection of poems titled Robert Lowell Surfs the Net, inspired by a conversation with coworkers at Denver’s Tattered Cover Bookstore — where she worked in the computer books section.
Fletcher studied writing and literature at the University of Iowa, the University of Arizona, and Lincoln College, Oxford University.
In 1999, she travelled by train from Denver to Philadelphia with her family— and became an administrator in Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania within a month of landing. She’s been there ever since.
