I am a freelance writer and occasional editor living in my native Colorado, where that big radioactive ball in the sky shines all the time and there is far too little fog. I’ve also lived in the Midwest, Northwest, France, and Italy. I write indie book reviews for BlueInk Review and blog for Relief: A Journal of Art and Faith (Relief.com). I’ve published two books on my journey into Eastern Orthodoxy (Regina Orthodox Press), and my essays and short fiction have appeared in several formats, one of which garnered a notable mention in Best American Essays. I have a husband and four grown children, and enjoy social dancing, hiking, and church stuff.

They say you should write the book you always wanted to read. Gold in Havilah is that book.
