Darby Winterhalter Löfstrand


I am an artist who views writing as one of the many creative outlets through which I express my passion for life. I live in Flagstaff, Arizona, with my husband Tobias, who comes from Sweden, and two loveable cats. In my "real job" (as my parents say), I am a faculty member in the Theatre Department at Northern Arizona University, where I teach/coach voice for stage and performance, and direct. I am also a jeweler who has sold through galleries across the States.

Writing is, for me, an expression of adoration for the people I have in my life. The inspiration for both my books has come from the real-life experiences of family, friends, and acquaintances.

My recreational passions are golf and riding horses (show ring hunters/jumpers). I am also an avid reader, though during the school year, my reading consists almost solely of student papers.

For those interested in such details, my educational resume is such: B.A. in English from Santa Clara University; M.A. in English Ed from Stanford University; M.F.A. in Performance from Arizona State University.
