I have always been a writer. Even when years went by and I didn’t write a single word for myself, I was a writer. Eventually, that writer got restless and demanded her days in the sun.
That is why, in December 2010, I left a long-standing, well-paying, flexible job in which I had built up substantial knowledge and goodwill in order to pursue a career in writing. I write primarily children’s picture books, and you can find information about my completed works here. I also write personal essays and travel pieces, many of which become blog posts.
I do blog about the craft of writing, publication, and my own writing process, but I consider myself more of a “life” blogger. Like many others, I work every day on living the most fulfilling, creative and loving life I can, and I love that the blog helps me meet like-minded people walking the same path.
I live in beautiful Boulder, CO with my husband and two amazing children. Our daughter (age 8, alias: Em) and our son (age 5, alias: Jay) are a constant source of inspiration and joy.

When I am not mothering, writing or reading, I enjoy running, hiking, skiing, cooking, yoga, and savoring a great glass of red wine at sunset. I especially like to do everything on this list while traveling.
Thanks for stopping by!
