I just hit "send" on my 10th book last night. Why do we do it, enslave ourselves to the page for months, years? Yes, we're weird, and here's exactly how weird we writers are. (Are you in here somewhere?)

Story
Tagline
Alaska-dweller, author of 9 books, galavanting speaker, lover of all things, true, lovely and possible.
Introduction
I'm the author of 9 books, a national speaker, blogger, lover of all things beautiful and true, especially in matters of theology  and culture. Some favorite topics: the spirituality of food, parenting, wilderness, incarnational living, forgiveness. My books include Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hate and Hurt, Surviving the Island of Grace, The Spirit of Food: 34 Writers on Feasting and Fasting Toward God. And to complicate this bio, I live on Kodiak Island, Alaska, where I work in commercial fishing with my husband and six children (mostly grown) on a remote wilderness island. From there, I direct the Harvester Island WIlderness Workshop. More here:
