I grew up in a small town in Minnesota and now live in a small town in Oregon. Between then and now I've lived all over the world, including two years in the Middle East and over a year in Mexico.
I've had a few careers--computer systems engineer (New Jersey), fruit farmer (California), domesticate violence advocate, doula (460 births), and childbirth educator (Oregon)--and now writer!
I'm a wife, mom, grandma, cat lover, gardener, embroiderer, traveler, and now (yay!) writer.
