Since early teen poetry and fiction, I’ve written a Ph.D., and now am about to launch my first book, Finding Holy in the Suburbs (InterVarsity Press, October 2018).
I used to study things like Enlightenment philosophy and travel literature (resulting in a Ph.D. that took a decade; that’s what happens when you have 4 kids and 6 moves), and now I think all the things on long walks holding little hands in mine.
I write for places like Books & Culture, ThinkChristian, The Englewood Review of Books, The Gospel Coalition, (in)courage, and lots of places online. I’m a contributor at The Mudroom and The Well and a member of Redbud Writers Guild. You can read some of my selected publications, articles, and essays here.
It’s one of my very favorite things to get down to brass tacks and talk about Jesus, our places, writing, and living life well. I’d love to help serve your group by speaking at your next event. (Find out more here).
I love making friends on Facebook (where I do FB Live videos, #MinivanMondays) and Twitter, and you can follow #findingholyinthesuburbs on Instagram. We belong to Resurrection OC and we’d love for you to join us if you’re local.
