I am originally from Ohio and currently live in Kaiserslautern, Germany with my wonderful husband Tim (a medic in the U.S. Army) and our two dogs Gir (a Pembroke Welsh Corgi) and Apollo (a Miniature Pinscher). I have a BFA in creative writing and am currently pursuing an MA in counseling psychology. In addition to this blog, I keep a fitness blog on my website Investing in Fitness and have written guest posts for several other blogs. I also write fiction and poetry, and my work has been published in Two-Thirds North, Five Stop Story, Psychic Meatloaf, The Montreal Review, and elsewhere. My story “If I Should Die” was the grand prize winner in Evolved Publishing‘s first short story contest and is featured as the first story in the anthology Evolution Vol. 1. You can access more of my work and keep updated about upcoming publications on my Facebook page.
