Carrie Ann Lahain moved to Las Vegas from Long Island in 2003. She received her B.A. in Anthropology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and went on to earn an M.A. from Rutgers. Her fiction focuses on character-driven narratives about individuals caught between their desire for genuine human connection and the trials inherent in day-to-day living.
Lahain’s work has appeared in magazines, anthologies, and literary journals including, Art Times, Italian Americana, Mature Years, and The Wrong Side of the Law. Her current project is a novel, "Morgrim’s Wood", in which a mother mourning the suicide of her teenaged daughter retreats with her family to an isolated mountain cabin where they are drawn into a fairy tale world hidden in the surrounding forest. Lahain is a recipient of the Nevada Arts Council Artist Fellowship in 2011.
