During the summer of 2016, Andrea, her husband, and their three children, age 15, 11, and 11, hiked the 500-mile Colorado Trail, exactly 20 years after she and her husband first hiked the CT. She is now working on a book about the two hikes and the environmental and socioeconomic changes that have taken place in Colorado during that time.
In her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, Andrea explores the connections between humans and nature, embraces the extremes of the motherhood experience, and confronts the emotional effects of environmental contamination. Her work has appeared in saltfront, Snowy Egret, Orion, Brain, Child Magazine, and About Place Journal, among others. See more of Andrea's writing here.
Andrea teaches workshops in nature writing and nature journaling and provides content writing and editing services. To schedule a workshop or discuss a writing or editing project with Andrea, please use the contact form at the right or email her at andreaelani (at) yahoo (dot) com.
