A Bit About Me
I'm an author, writer, and writing coach at lifewritingwanderlust.com. Stories have always been at the center of my heart. I know they change lives - since, they changed mine. From the first moment my grandma told me tales about growing up on the golden prairies of North Dakota during the Great Depression, I was hooked. I love sharing about the writing life and helping others on their publishing journey as well. I want to help as many writers share their stories so they can make a difference in others' lives.
I live with my husband, Johan and our two cats (Loki and Luna-boy) in North Dakota where the prairies and forests collide. When I'm not writing, doing blog posts/videos, gardening, or playing with my kitties, I really love going on road trips and adventures with my husband.
