If we were meeting in person, I’d probably grill you about your life and interests – not only because I love finding out about people, but because as an introvert I prefer the spotlight on others. But here goes.
I’m an American married to Nicholas, an English vicar, and we live in a spacious but chilly vicarage in London with our two great kids, PyelotBoy and CutiePyeGirl. I’ve lived here 20 years and still regularly discover new quirks and differences – such as an English friend gently telling me recently that I haven’t yet understood the difference between biscuits and cookies. All part of the adventure.
My spiritual journey has included some mountaintop highs and a dark night of the soul. Yet in the day-to-day moments I’ve experienced God break in with his surprising grace, which changes me. I enjoy writing about these nudges of grace in everyday life.
One of my loves (besides the all-important people in my life) is books. I’ve immersed myself in publishing for a couple of decades, editing and now writing as I work with words. I love running the Woman Alive book club, where each month I feature a book that captures my interest and host a conversation about books with an author.
I also love baking Ghiradhelli brownies, body combat classes, and listening to the roar of the waves.
You can contact me by email [email protected] or [email protected] or follow me on Twitter or Facebook. You can see my latest Woman Alive book review and join in the Facebook conversation here. I look forward to continuing our conversation.
Please note, I’m not currently working as an editor so am not taking on any editorial projects. Thank you!
