I'm an author, a mother, a YA novel fanatic, and a wannabe mystic. I have a Masters in Theology and a PhD in Creative writing from St. Andrews University in Scotland. My writing has appeared at Christianity Today, Art House America, Christian Century, cordella, and SheLoves. I'm a regular contributor to Good Letters, an Image Journal blog. 

I've written about farm life, the local church, death, the quirkiness of community, the spiritual disciplines of motherhood, and the Christian mystics, who point me toward interior castles and intense encounters with God on the wild edges of faith.

My book, Mystics and Misfits: Finding God Through St. Francis and Other Unlikely Saints, is forthcoming from Herald Press in Spring 2018.
