I am the author of The Oat Project: How I Faced My Fear and Came of Age in One Wild Summer, a memoir about how I finally sowed my wild oats, doing 25 things my preacher’s daughter upbringing never allowed, like getting drunk, dancing, skinny dipping, smoking weed, and more…at the ripe age of 37 while a wife and mother of three. I was raised all over the U.S. as a preacher’s daughter before finally rebelling. When I’m not working on my first novel and memoir sequels, I’m photographing, belly laughing with friends, making art, singing jazz, or squeezing words from my teenage children while driving them home from school. I live in Colorado Springs and even get to yoga and hikes every now and then like a good Coloradan.
