One-Line Bio

I'm a mother, wife, writer, dog lover, and knitter.


I'm a writer and mother of two boys living in the suburbs in Minnesota. I'm also the author of two guidebooks to Minnesota: Backroads & Byways of Minnesota (June 2011), and Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes: an Explorer's Guide (originally 2008, update coming 2012). When not traveling around the state, I'm the Communications Coordinator for the Sajai Foundation, working on a novel, take care of the kids and hubby, watch the dogs (one frightfully spoiled Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Gracie and the latest addition, a border collie/Australian shepherd named Holli) and yearn helplessly for more episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
