I grew up in Minnesota, have spent most of my life in the state, and now live in Moorhead, where I teach English at Minnesota State University. Over the years I have received several awards for my fiction: a James Michener Fellowship, a Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship, a Jerome travel grant, and a Lake Region Arts Fellowship. I have an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where I was a Teaching-Writing Fellow. I have published three novels: Undiscovered Country, The High Divide, and American Gospel. Also, working in collaboration with my brother, Leif Enger, I have published six mystery novels: the Pedersen series, consisting of Comeback, Swing, Strike, Sacrifice, The Sinners' League, and Hard Curves. All of these books are available for purchase via links on this website.
