Hi. I’m Andrea. I am a writer, editor, and a yoga instructor. I balance all of this with the help of coffee, chocolate, and plenty of irony. Not to be mistaken for ironing. I don’t do any of that.
I am part of a ridiculously creative family, who have all been wonderful mentors and role models. My mother loved handcrafts, and my father, always one for details, has excelled in everything from jewelry making to woodworking. I have an uncle who is a world-famous painter. I am also the niece of Eleanor and Francis Coppola, and they and their entire family have always been a source of inspiration and encouragement.
Telling stories has been a lifelong passion and pastime. I love the process and the journey, and the destination is always a bonus.
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma but was born and raised in Southern California, where I still visit regularly.
