Charlie Quimby’s debut novel, Monument Road, was an Indie Next pick, a
Booklist Editors’ Choice 2013 and a Reading the West finalist. Before turning to fiction, he was an award-winning writer and marketing agency owner who co-authored Planning to Stay, a guide for how residents can shape development in their communities. His nonfiction has appeared in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, High Country News and the Harvard Business Review, and two of his plays have been produced. A native Coloradan and adopted Minnesotan, he makes home in both places and tells stories about homelessness in his blog at charliequimby.com.
