Welcome to the Wild Ride!

If you’re looking for inspiration, travel tips, or entertaining posts about life’s misadventures, you’ve come to the right place!

Oversharing and having no shame is a great combination for some wild adventures.  Whether I’m making a scene or being told to THINK BIG inside my head, I blog about my wild life no matter how absurd it gets in Boulder, Colorado.

Whether I’m skiing,

mountain biking,

biking the boulder reservoir

or hiking in Colorado, I love exploring the wild outdoors.

I also love to travel and write ultimate guides for the places I love.

My husband, Danny, thinks he’s the butt of my jokes and he’s right, especially when karma kicks mine.

Don’t worry. I laugh at myself too. I have a ridiculous sense of humor and have a tendency to go for it whether I’m heli-skiing in Canada or finding my badass self after knee surgery.

I graduated with a BS in Art but found my true passion is writing. Now I paint scenes with words.

Sometimes I illustrate my posts like this one after NaNoWriMo.

I’ve also been known to take an icy plunge with polar bears and pick up random strangers to ski.

I am a breast cancer survivor and wrote humorous Boob Reports to chronicle my ridiculous journey to being cancer-free after double boobectomies. Boobs are pretty funny. I wrote an open letter to them and they responded. Someday, The Boob Report will transform from blog to book.

Heck yes, these boobs are fake t-shirt

Along with non-fiction, I write thrillers. My debut novel takes place in a Gothic estate in the South of France. The apparitions and premonitions in my story are based on some of my own experiences. I know! Everything that happened to me at the Stanley Hotel is true.

I write screenplays and collaborated on one with Erik Wolter. We are currently shopping it. I’m a busy girl.

After blogging for almost seven years, I love to share what I know while building my blogging community!

    Hi Susie! I am stopping by to let you know that I tagged you in a blogger game called Blog Tag. It is a game for fun to encourage communication and interaction within the blogger community. Why I chose you? I chose you because I want to share some joy with you. And that is important: It is supposed to be fun, no duty. If you feel called to participate, that is great. If you feel called to not participate, that is great. 🙂
