She grew up in Florida, but has slowly discovered the benefits of cold weather, and she's developed a passion for snow shoeing, drinking bourbon in front of the fireplace, and writing while draped with a blanket. She's an avid runner, a voracious reader, and a passionate, if not quite skilled, baker. She lives with her husband and two kids.
