Before I ever wrote one line of a novel, I was a newspaper reporter. My beat was government news. And for most of the meetings I covered, I was the only female in the room. And sadly, all over the world, women and girls face barriers when it comes to fundamental human rights, access to education and an equal place in the workforce. We’ve come a long way. We still have a way to go. Empowered girls grow up to be empowered women. I am so proud to be a part of the #AugusteforWOMEN & #UNWomenAust campaign. Join @augustethelabel and @UNWomen in raising awareness for the empowerment, education, safety and leadership of our sisters. And visit Auguste the Label to purchase one of these beautiful tees! 100% of the retail value goes to meeting the needs of women and girls worldwide! 💗
I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards and small-town summer nights. I grew up on a farm in a little Midwestern town. Now, I live in Kansas City, Mo., with my weatherman husband.
