Webb was born and raised in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. When she was about 11 years old, her school librarian suggested she read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. From that point on, she knew what she was meant to do in life—write novels like that one.
Webb won Minnesota Book Award honors for The Tale of Halcyon Crane (2011) and The End of Temperance Dare (2018). Today, she divides her time between homes in Duluth and Minneapolis, and a cabin on the Gunflint Trail.
ECRL Reads is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
