Who am I?
I’ve been a full-time, professional writer for twelve years. In 2000, at the age of 24, I moved to Sarajevo, Bosnia. I met my husband, former Associated Press correspondent, Alexander S. Dragicevic; got married and had our first child. During my three years there, I also wrote for AP out of the Sarajevo bureau. The stories of war’s aftermath. Survival. War crimes. Mass graves. Landmines. Needless to say, it shaped my soul.
It also set me on an incredible path that has brought me to where I am today: writing stories that reach into people’s hearts and remind them of their innate power, their beauty, their ability to re-find life amidst the worst pain. Novels. Screenplays. Trauma. Kindness. Relationships. Action. Purpose. Story.
I’m increasingly convinced that Story is all there is. The Stories we live, believe, release and embrace.
We left AP in 2004 to move back to my native Minnesota. Aside from my creative projects, I write copy for corporate marketing teams. My clients, like me, are driven by a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. If by nothing else than reminding people to stop and think. Life is meant to be rich, and full, and beautiful and whole.
You have the power to choose it.
Currently, my husband, our three kids and I live between a beautiful resort area in Minnesota and one of the best cities in the world, Sarajevo.
