Andrea is a writer, editor, yoga teacher, and professional introvert. She balances all this with the help of chocolate, peanut butter straight out of the jar, and plenty of irony. Not to be mistaken for ironing. She doesn’t do any of that.
She grew up in Southern California but now calls Tulsa, Oklahoma home, where she lives with her partner and a million houseplants. Favorite pastimes include starting knitting projects, making vegetable soup, and lamenting the existential qualities of housework.
Other items of interest (in handy bullet-point summation)
- May have an unusually large yarn stash
- Blank journal addict (who can stop at just one?)
- Loved to play with receipt books as a child (duplicate good, triplicate better)
- Still loves Old Skool Vans
- Everyone thinks she is super relaxed BUT SHE IS NOT
Andrea’s “Beverley Green Adventures” series might be best described as “GenX Chick Cozy Lit Comedy Adventure.” Until BookBub creates a category for that, just know her books are filled with laughter, lightheartedness, and yes, plenty of irony. The books follow late-bloomer Beverley as she navigates new territories in her mid-40s: a new town, a new career and a newfound appreciation of nice guys.
“Days Are Beautiful” is a collection of 100 flash fiction stories, each of which are 100 words long. Written one per day during the early days of the “2020 stay at home party,” the stories come together to form an unusual journal of an unusual year.
Andrea is the niece of Eleanor and Francis Coppola, and would like to thank them and their family for their inspiration and encouragement.
