Where were you born and where have you lived?
I was born not (that) long ago in the faraway land of Greeley, CO. I lived in Nebraska, Chicago, and France before moving to Fort Collins in 2006.
Where did you attend university or college?
I have a B.A. in English from Doane College, a small liberal arts school in Crete, NE. I went on to get my master’s degree in the humanities from the University of Chicago.
What kind of reading do you most enjoy doing?
I love reading 19th century novels so thick that my children can use them as stools. I’m currently reading Vanity Fair.
What are the small essentials that make life more comfortable?
Scrambling eggs, swimming in lakes, watching Bing Crosby movies, dancing with my daughters and husband, and drinking lots of coffee.
What are your favorite snacks?
Chocolate, caramels, cookies, cake, and almost anything untainted by the dreaded coconut.
What do you do to unwind?
