I'm an author, a mother, a YA novel fanatic, and a wannabe mystic. I write about farm life, the local church, death, the quirkiness of community, and more recently, the Christian mystics, who point me toward interior castles, dirty souls, and intense encounters with God on the wild edges of faith. My book, Mystics and Misfit: Finding God Through St. Francis and Other Unlikely Saints, is forthcoming from Herald Press in Spring 2018.
