D. Willson lives in Portland, Oregon with her metal-fabricating husband, baby girl, and two insane dogs. While her day job is in education and her 24-7 job is a mother, she likes to escape by writing it all out. Memories and real-life stories inspire her to connect with others about how to survive this often-difficult thing called life. She has written two books, Jar Half Full and The Fruit of Her Spirit. She also often shares her thoughts on faith, education, motherhood, and life-in general through her blog.
