(1945 - living) U.S.A.
Born in Charleston, South Carolina, got a B.A in English from Pomona, and an M.A. in English from Stanford in 1971. MacCrary Boyd has taught writing at Connecticut College, New Jersey, since 1982.
Her work is informed by being a lesbian in Southern context. Her novels, several of which centre on the kinds of family dramas often associated with Southern writers, tend to focus on female characters who, at some point in their lives, become lesbian, and who react against the oppressivness of their environment. She also has a large body of published articles, short fiction and screenplays to her credit.
