Audrey Destin was born in Plainfield, Indiana. Yep. That’s true. PLAIN-FIELD.
Unsurprisingly, she packed her bags when she was eight, and ran away to her grandparent’s house, searching for something more. She didn’t yet know what that something was, but she knew she didn’t belong with her feet planted in the plain fields of Indiana. Sadly for her, that adventure was a bust, and her grandparents, who also lived in Plainfield, called her mother to come to pick her up.
Little did she know, that would only be the beginning for her.
Today she lives in the suburbs of Seattle, WA, where she would never run at night alone for fear of both cougars and bears. Something they didn’t have in Plainfield, Indiana.
More content with the excitement of her life, she lives happily with her husband and three children.
She graduated from college after studying fine art and journalism and has produced a creative life to decorate her family with.
Moving Forward Optional is her debut Indie novel and her fourth baby. Not including the dog. Please don’t tell the dog she’s not child number four. Or the hampster.
On second thought, correction, Moving Forward Optional is baby number six.
Two human girls. One human boy. One dog. One hamster. And now an Indie book, which has reached the time where it has been given its wings and must be allowed to leave the nest and change the world, the way only a truly loved child can and will do.
Unloved children change the world all the time.
Never forget that.
Here’s looking at you, unloved kids.
