Open Book
I am excited to announce that my memoir Wax Night In Montana will be published soon!  Followed thereafter by the second book in this series, Raising Pups In Montana.

Want to know what pilot readers said about this book?

"An entertaining memoir that will leave you laughing and crying as well as connecting with the strength and bond of women."

"I am left with salt dry tears on my cheeks and so much gratitude for the depth of vulnerability and sharing!  Reading your book has been a wonderful gift to me and a turnkey moment."

"This story really impressed on me how important a community of friends is to us all.  It also illustrates how those relationships need to be continually cultivated even when things get tough."

"Your book feels like a companion to a personal re-birth or re-entry of sorts, wonderful in its vision of the truly important."

"Yes, Yes, Yes! I would recommend this book. As a matter of fact, I have already told a couple people that they will need to keep an eye out for it.  Let's be honest, they'll be receiving it as a gift."

"I was impressed with the author's voice.  It comes through clearly as feminine, both irreverent and sacred, with unmistakable Montana DNA of bravery, soul, grit, and modern woman."

"I am inspired to erase my dark corners of bitterness with deep and intentional connection... and self love."

Wax Night In Montana

when women gather to strip away pleasantries and etiquette,

revealing the beauty and depth of True Friendship

     As far-reaching as the Big Sky, and yet as intimate as a conversation by a glimmering campfire, this book holds within its calloused hands the comradery women long for.

     The hilarity of situations in which these six women find themselves - whether it be waxing, setting the dance floor on fire, or a weekend at the hot springs - will have you laughing ‘til your cheeks ache.

     Set against a panorama of vivid and enduring depictions of Montana character, the Wax Night women strip away pleasantries and etiquette, to bare themselves and their souls.
     Friendship takes the heroine role, displaying power to shine light upon the abyss of trauma and dissipate despair. Sharing my own personal trauma in these pages allows a glimpse of the mountains surmountable with the help of true depth of friendship.
     Written with equal measures of hilarity, haunting, and healing, the characters within will resonate long after the last page is savored.
Raising Pups In Montana
the Strength we find in ourselves as Mothers
     Motherhood is one job that requires more strength and fortitude than any other. Of course, I had been told this was the case before I chose to become a mother. I found the best way to survive motherhood is to find strength in numbers.

     The infamous Gray Timber wolves have continued to successfully navigate the environment in which they live. The pack mentality of the wolf is one built upon the understanding that sharing the work of raising pups is necessary for survival.

     I've become part of an incredible pack of women, all mothers. We join together in raising our feisty whelps, share the weight of constant worry, and find strength within ourselves we were previously unaware was possible.

      As I regale the trials and triumphs of myself and my five closest friends, I highlight the ways women can support each other in motherhood. Whether raising our children in a democracy or a dictatorship, the stories we share of surviving and ultimately cherishing our babies are moving with emotion and hilarity.
