The day Valerie found out she was pregnant with her second child was the day her husband died. He'd fallen asleep driving. She didn't know how to be a widow. Widows were old, with bunions. Not 26, and pregnant. She moved cross-country from Massachusetts to Oregon, delivered her baby, and sought catharsis in journaling and art. And then there was the dating. Somehow that seemed scarier than trying the spirit medium. During her spiritual journey, she discovered that falling in love again wasn't a betrayal, and soon enough, she was able to wear grief with grace.

About the Author

Valerie Willman is a licensed massage therapist, freelance editor, and dog lover living in Eugene, Oregon. She aspires to live off the grid, and grow her own food in Costa Rica. If she could be a fictional character it would be a cross between Elizabeth Bennet and Maude. Miss Bennet, because she's equal parts fire-y and loveable whipper-snapper. Also, she gets to kiss Colin Firth. And Maude, because she lived from the inside out and collected art and was sooooooo alive. Every. Day. Even though Valerie's writing can be loud, she writes in silence. If she's stuck, chocolate helps. Also, episodes of Laverne and Shirley. And dancing in her kitchen to Spotify. Find her at valeriewillman.com.
