I was that weird, serious little girl with her head in a book, the one who used words she didn’t know how to pronounce.
Then, I found writing after I left my hometown in Wyoming to go to Dartmouth College. There, I discovered I liked spending hours and hours, all by myself, rearranging words, as much as I liked spending hours and hours reading them.
Then came motherhood, which happened about ten minutes after I got to Dartmouth. Which has always, 100%, been to my advantage, even when I didn’t know it.
How I raised two children while raising myself, reclaimed my soul from the fundamentalist Christianity in which I was raised, navigated the joys and hardships of marriage, survived the terrors of divorce, and stayed true to my daydreamy book-obsessed self is my story. Books, film, television, fine arts & mental and physical health are my interests. I’m curious about everything and passionate about what inspires me. Writing about what I see, learn, and feel is the only way I know to make sense of the world!
