Michelle Latiolais, an English professor at UC Irvine’s Programs in Writing, is the author of the novel Even Now, which received the Gold Medal for Fiction from the Commonwealth Club of California. Her second novel, A Proper Knowledge was published in 2008 by Bellevue Literary Press. Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones, said of the book, "In prose shimmering with intelligence and compassion, Michelle Latiolais dissects the essentials of everyday life to find the heartbeat within. A Proper Knowledge reveals an author with that rare eye which is at once both clinical and poetic."

Latiolais' writing has been published in three anthologies, Absolute Disaster, Women On The Edge: Writing From Los Angeles and Woof! Writers on Dogs. Her stories and essays have appeared in Zyzzyva, The Antioch Review, Western Humanities ReviewSanta Monica Review and, most recently, the Iowa Review and the Northwest Review. Latiolais’ newest book, Widow, a collection of stories, involutions and essays, is forthcoming from Bellevue Literary Press in January 2011.
