Shreve was educated at the University of Pennsylvania as well as the University of Virginia. She has also taught at George Washington University, Bennington College, and Princeton. She briefly served as an essayist on The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour.
As a writer, her works often center around the integrity of characters; with the choices they make when confronting adversity. Her book Daughters of the New World inspired a television miniseries A Will of Their Own. The program used no lines from her novel, and was critically panned. She has since stated that one of her most well-acclaimed books, A Country of Strangers, would never be made into a Hollywood movie. Lucy Forever and Miss Rosetree, Shrinks (1987) received an Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Mystery.
She has four grown children, one of whom, Porter Shreve, is also a published author. Shreve lives in Washington, DC. She is the writer of several series including Joshua T. Bates.
