Maren Bradley Anderson is a writer, teacher, blogger, and alpaca rancher who lives in rural Oregon. She writes while her children are at school and spends the rest of her time scooping up alpaca poop, knitting, playing with her family, reading, and watching cartoons and nature programs on television. Oh, and grading papers. She does lots of that, too. She teaches literature and composition at a local college and novel writing to eager, budding writers.
