Darcie Chan is the author of The Mill River Recluse, a self-published debut novel that has
become a word-of-mouth e-book sensation. With nearly 700,000 copies sold, The Mill River
Recluse appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists for more than 28 weeks
and became a heartwarming favorite of readers across the country.
Darcie was born in Wisconsin and grew up in the small towns of Brandon, Wisconsin, La Junta
and Cheraw, Colorado, and Paoli, Indiana. Thanks to loving and supportive parents who are both
educators, she learned to read and write at an early age. She has two younger sisters, with whom
she is very close.
Currently, Darcie lives just north of New York City with her husband and son. She writes during
every moment that she isn't chasing after her toddler. She gets very little sleep, especially now
that she is immersed in writing a second novel set in Mill River, Vermont.
