I am a thirtysomething Minneapolis-based writer and publishing professional. I was raised in Northfield, Minnesota, home of a Malt-O-Meal factory, Defeat of Jesse James Days, and two great liberal arts colleges. Aside from my family and friends, my two greatest passions in life are the written word and running. I attended Carleton College, where I earned a B.A. in English Literature with a Concentration in Media Studies. While at Carleton, I ran cross country and track, spent a semester in Edinburgh, wrote for the student newspaper, and served as a Rhetoric Assistant for Carleton’s fantastic Summer Writing Program.
I live in a chaotic but love-filled home with my husband Josh, our two-year-old daughter and infant son, and two dogs who (God help me) love to dig. It’s difficult to balance my responsibilities as a wife, mother, employee, home owner, runner, and writer, but I love a good challenge, and I’m sure that many of my readers can relate.
My blogoir (blog meets memoir), Divorced Before 30, was the first draft of my memoir, From Splitsville, With Love. I am represented by Claire Gerus of the Claire Gerus Literary Agency. I love to hear from readers and fellow writers and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
