Kate MacVean is no stranger to living abroad. A semester in Spain was soon followed by a summer in the mountains of Mexico, and then a two-year stint in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica. Now she is happily settled in a town outside of Madrid, where she lives with her husband and their two sons. She graduated from Binghamton University with a degree in Creative Writing, and her work has appeared in Philosophical Mother and Tattoo Highway. E-mail Kate here.
