I'm not down, I'm just savin' up.
In a nutshell, and if I can remember most of it, well fuck it- let's just hit the highlights: I am a writer, artist, yarn spinner (yes both literally and figuratively), canoer, fly-fisherman, folklore hunter, dive-bar'er, pool playing old truck driving whisky drinking wine maker's daughter. I don't understand poetry but if I had to make my best guess I'd say that when you only use a few words they have to be perfect. That's why I'm not a poet. I like to use lots of words and the wronger the better. I have two kids, they are stunning. I like old books, old country songs (good or bad), old things, creaky leather, running water and fine coffee. I can make carnitas from scratch and don't even get me started on pumpkin. I take honey and cream in my coffee. I take my coffee in a diner mug. I prefer bank-eight to straight and like 600 thread count sheets. I have 5 pillows and two cats one is named Gravy.

Not Lost for Lookin' is her first fiction. Boeger is qualified to write on the topic due to her 39 years of running amuck in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas; fishing, loving, losing and raising hell since 1974.
Boeger is currently focusing on fiction writing and community non-profit work in her hometown.
