B.K. Loren joins us for a discussion of her debut novel, “Theft,” categorized by writer Ann Pancake as a riveting combination of “part environmental novel, part elegy to place, part family tragedy, part murder mystery.” Her writing has garnered Pushcart nominations, fellowships, and inclusion among Best American Spiritual Writing anthologies. She has worked as a naturalist, large predator monitor for Colorado State Parks, professional brainstormer, assistant chef, ranch hand, UPS driver, furniture maker, and college professor while still managing to produce prose that reviewers deem visceral, lyrical, and incandescent.

BK lives with her partner, two dogs, and two cats in Colorado, where long, daily walks enrich her reflections on life.
