Bio:
I have been a writer most of my life. I am a Master of Public Administration, a mother, a knitter, a skier, and an adventurer. I am a Colorado Native, an Oregon Duck, a former Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Ski Instructor and a New York City survivor. My writing comes from a bottomless curiosity about human nature and the experiences we share. In addition to Breastfeeding Is a Bitch, But We Lovingly Do it Anyway I am working on my first Historical Fiction novel about a female psychopath vying for power in 1912 Denver.
