Henriette is the fifth generation of her family to live in the house in Papingo that will be the home of the Krouna Writing Workshop. Since she was an English major at Middlebury College and visiting family during the summers, she dreamed of holding writing workshops in the courtyard where the views of the Astraka cliffs and the peaceful setting of the unique village could inspire writers. In July of 2018, she launched the inaugural Krouna Writing Workshop there.


Henriette's recent novel about Antarctic explorers in 1910 and the woman who loves them both, TERRA NOVA, was called "ingenious" and "provocative" by the New York Times. Her debut novel THE CLOVER HOUSE (Random House/Ballantine) was a Boston Globe best-seller and a Target Emerging Authors pick. Her other work has appeared in publications including ELLE, Forge, Narrative Magazine, Salamander, New England Review, The Millions, The New York Times, and the Huffington Post, and has earned her a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artists Grant. A Ph. D. in English, Henriette taught at Harvard for ten years and now teaches at GrubStreet in Boston.

Her third novel, LAST DAYS IN PLAKA, set in that quarter of Athens, comes out in April of 2024.
