Once upon a time, not so very long ago, I taught literature in a fabulous liberal studies program near Seattle. I spent my days pondering the origins of the novel, the relationship between gender and genre, and the impact of colonialism on the post-modern narrative. I drank lots of terrific coffee and the occasional mid-afternoon martini. Now I live in Oklahoma City with my husband and our two small sons (Henry, 6, and Charlie, 4); I pass the time contemplating which superhero is the strongest, what park has the most shade, and how many ways vegetarian chicken nuggets can be garnished. In my spare time, I shop for shoes, preferably pointy-toed flats that will make me look less like a mom and more like someone you might want to have drinks with.
All things considered, I love nearly every minute of this life, especially the minutes right after that first cup of coffee and right before the cocktail hour.
Have a question? Shoot me an e-mail and I’ll see what I can do for you.
