Author bio: Jeri’s truth is stranger than fiction, and it’s a long story. She grew up in the eccentric mining town of Wallace, Idaho. A bipolar mother, spousal abandonment, and breast cancer have shaped her into a resilient soul and raconteur of personal upheaval and wanderlust.

Lost Girl Road (in progress) is a work of contemporary psychological fiction set in the woods of northwest Montana. She intends to submit to literary agents upon completion. An appreciation for travel, minimalism, personal growth, and human conditioning is reflected in her writing.

Her creative nonfiction and short stories have been published in Idaho Magazine and cold-drill. Most recently, she won first place in the 2018 Idaho Writers Guild essay contest. Receive exclusive content via her quarterly author newsletter.
