About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    I just read a few pages and it got me hooked! Can’t wait to read the rest 🙂 I know we’re a few years away (baby is 6 weeks old!) but it’s never too early to start planning.

    Been following you guys for a while. I’ve shared this link with my editor, so hopefully he’ll include it in tomorrow’s edition of “The Back Fence.”
