Home and Family
“The home is the wellspring of personhood. It is where our identities take root and blossom, where as children, we imagine, play and question, and as adolescents, we retreat and try.”Matthew Desmond, Evicted
In 2007, I finally quit my job in Manhattan. My husband and I sold his family home and together with my father-in-law and cat, we built a home on 17 acres in rural Virginia within sight of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our new farm, called Seven Oaks, consists mostly of pines with some land dedicated to growing apples, peaches, flowers, and vegetables for our consumption. I’m married to my best friend, John, and we live with a German shepherd dog and seven cats.
I make my full-time living as a content marketing consultant and SEO writer through my company, Seven Oaks Consulting, write and publish fiction through my other company, Bricks & Brambles Press, and delight in gardening, cooking, baking, and reading in my spare time.
