Since the 4th grade, I have been writing—short stories, shopping lists, Dear Santa letters, and Dear John letters. When I grew up, I knew exactly what I wanted to be, so I did it…in a roundabout way. After struggling through the advertising world as a marketing lackey, then as a copywriting lackey, I left it all behind to write for the sophisticated, exciting world of design. Contributing to DivineCaroline has been a dream come true. Who knew years of attempting, failing, and succeeding at womanhood would come in handy? When not writing, I enjoy food, wine, Brit rockers, cycling, and people watching in Boulder, CO.
