She lives in Hopkins with her husband, daughter, and two basset hounds. When she’s not wordsmithing, you can find Andrea volunteering for Secondhand Hounds Animal Rescue, walking her hounds, catching a Twins game with her husband, chasing after her daughter at the Minnesota Zoo, or savoring a chai tea latte.
