T. Greenwood grew up in rural Vermont. She began writing stories at seven years old and wrote her first "novel" at nine on her dad's electric typewriter.
Since then, she has published thirteen novels. She has received grants from the Sherwood Anderson Foundation, the Christopher Isherwood Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Maryland State Arts Council. She has won three San Diego Book Awards. Five of her novels have been Indie Next picks. BODIES OF WATER was finalist for a Lambda Foundation award. Her thirteenth novel, KEEPING LUCY, was published by St. Martin's Press in August 2019 and was a Target Book Club selection in November 2020.
She teaches creative writing for San Diego Writer's Ink and online for The Writer's Center. She and her husband, Patrick, split their time between San Diego, CA and her family's camp on a pond in Vermont. They have two daughters, two dogs, and one very old cat.
She is also a photographer.
