Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.
I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.
My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.
She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner badasses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.
Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.
I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.
I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.

AND NOW, an Interview with the fabulous lady herself:
(1) Have you ever been in a bar fight? I was a bartender for a very long time so I’ve been in my share fair of bar fights and I have broken up plenty of them as well. I’ve never been the cause of one however.
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,…something from the Raven by Poe for sure
(5) Do you have any secret talents? I can mix one hell of a drink…not sure if that is secret or not
(12) Do you have any scars? From what? Several. I was in a couple of bad car accidents as a teenager…the big ones on my arms are tattooed over now but I still have a very faint one on my cheek from the windshield
