I'm an author, a mother, a YA novel fanatic, and a bit of a misfit. I write about fairtytales, 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. I have a Masters in Theology and a PhD in Creative writing from St. Andrews University in Scotland. My writing has appeared in such places as Christianity Today, Art House America, Christian Century, cordella, and SheLoves, and I'm a regular contributor to Good Letters, an Image Journal blog.
My book, Mystics and Misfits: Meeting God Through St. Francis and Other Unlikely Saints, is available at Amazon and Mennomedia.
