Sweetpeas are in bloom all over the neighborhood; so, too, is the butterfly bush. The air is heavy with fragrance. Year after year, the same list of things stirs my emotions. How long the evenings are, before the last wisps of light leave the sky. How much the boys have grown since last summer.

I brought it to a party on perhaps the only day, so far, that has really felt like summer, here. It was hot and breezeless; the sky was white. I wore a lapis blue linen dress and sandals for the occasion, and as I sipped cold wine, a whisper of sweat trickled down my spine.

Story
Introduction
I live at the water's edge in Seattle with my husband, two boys, two cats, and a Corgi named Nelly. I can usually be found with my nose in a book, baking, or lagging behind the crowd with my camera. 
Bragging rights
I'm currently working on a memoir interwoven with cutting-edge science, depicting the realities of living with a BRCA1 gene mutation. My book, Inheritance, will be published by National Geographic.
