One grouchy husband. Three reluctant kids. Five hundred miles of wilderness. One and a half centuries of exploitation of natural resources. And one mom, determined to escape the humdrum existence of modern parenting and a toxic work environment for the family adventure of a lifetime.

Andrea’s essays and short stories have been published in the anthologies Multiples Illuminated: Life with Twins and Triplets, the Toddler to Tween Years and This Side of the Divide: Stories of the American West as well as a number of print and online journals, and her essay “The Sparrow’s Song,” published in The Sunlight Press, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Andrea has degrees in human ecology and creative writing from College of the Atlantic and the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast MFA Program.
