Willow Feller, a recovering Pharisee, lives in the woods of North Idaho with her husband, Mike, and as of recently, none of the six rambunctious kids that they managed to raise and sequentially kick out of the nest. The nest-emptying has opened up more writing time for Willow, resulting in the publication of her first novel, The Epic Undoing of Haley Ann Ewing (Evergreen Press) as well as recent articles for the online magazine, Burnside Writers Collective.

Together, Willow and Mike enjoy all the usual hyphenated Idaho stuff: trail-ambling, huckleberry-picking, firewood-cutting, and grizzly-sparring. They especially delight in time spent with their adorable granddaughters. Willow does not enjoy onion patch weeding, grinding stumps on the eight-acre plot Mike is intent on clearing, or the sound of her own screaming when, while operating a cantankerous tractor, she panics and pulls the hydraulic loader control lever in all the wrong directions, causing said loader to dangle field boulders over her hard-working husband’s head.

Mike doesn’t enjoy that either.

  1. I’ve nominated you for a SUPER SWEET BOGGER AWARD! check my posts at http://themightymumford.wordpress.com/
    for details. 🙂

    I have really enjoyed your blog and think that more people should enjoy it also. For that reason I have nominated you for the Liebster award (I can’t seem to be able to attached the graphic, but you can see it on my site). From what I’ve read the Liebster award is an informal award chain given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 readers/followers. ‘Liebster’ in German means – dearest, sweetest, kindest, beloved….and all the nice words you can think of. Please don’t feel obligated to continue this, I just find it a fun thing to do and a way to encourage others.
    So here are the rules for this award:
    1. Thank the blog that has given you the award.
    2. State 11 random facts about yourself.
    3. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you.
    4. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
    5. Create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer
    6. Go to their page and tell them.

    The “Eleven” Questions: (I only chose five. You can add more if you like.)
    1. What writers/people have inspired you most?
    2. What is your idea of a relaxing day?
    3. If you could have an alternate career, what would it be?
    4. What is your favourite season and why?
    5. What is your greatest accomplishment?

    • I’m really appreciative and honored, A. I’ll get right on it. (And thank you for not asking eleven questions–these five are going to make me think hard enough as it is…) Blessings to you and yours!

    Just found your blog, and I love the title. This, too, is my journey. The freedom feels great, is worth whatever cost, in spite of the bad days that feel they might be the last. 🙂 Keep up the good work.

    • I appreciate your writing as well. You’re right–we have to be willing to own up to, and expose the shadowed places in our own hearts before we can ever hope to make an appropriate judgment call concerning someone else. Thank you for your feedback!
