The Hippie is an unfortunate nickname that Sage, (A.K.A. Willow), received one day whilst being herself. It is one of many nicknames she has received over the years, including, but not limited to: Fons, Special, Mudd Queen, Sensei, and Megan. To her family she is better known as Kirsten, K-dogg, and Big K.

She graduated with a Master’s in Social Work in 2007 and worked as a Licensed Mental Health Therapist and Adjunct Professor. Although she loved the work she was doing, she loved writing more, and left her job to pursue it. Snowflake Obsidian is her debut novel.

Her interests include: writing, yoga, holding hugs too long, kissing dogs on the mouth, and seeing how many feathers she can get into her hair at one time. She currently lives with

Reading Group Discussion Guide

1. What is the importance of “Beloved,” to Willow? Was it symbolic in some way?

2. In the beginning of the story Jo is a main character. However, she fades away as Willow goes through her inner journey. Was it necessary for Willow to break away from Jo to “find” herself? Why or why not?

“I’ve noticed in my life that the people who act as my angels are not some strange angelic creatures that seem almost untouchable, but are more real than that. They are people who have tasted sorrow, who have felt pain, and in a way, that makes them capable of being an angel. In their darkest moments they have become strong.”
Sage Steadman "The Hippie", Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a Cutter

“It wasn’t that everything was going my way, but I began to believe that the way it was going was perfect. I accepted that where I was in life, was exactly where I was supposed to be.”
Sage Steadman "The Hippie", Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a Cutter

“It was strange that in some sort of Jeffrey Dahmer meets Ghandi way I was
able to love myself for hating myself. It seemed like a warped sense of
love. But it was love without conditions.”
Sage Steadman "The Hippie", Snowflake Obsidian: Memoir of a Cutter

“The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“Drinking would shut down my seeing and my hearing and my feeling,' she used to say. 'Why would I want to be in the world if I couldn't touch the world with all of my senses intact?”
Sherman Alexie, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.”
Henry David Thoreau

“I think you should listen to your heart. It is there the True One speaks to us most.”
Derek Donais, MetalMagic: Talisman

“What you must remember is that the magic itself is neither good nor bad, no more so than this ship might be used for right or wrong. It might be used by a fisherman to feed a village, for example. Or, the same vessel might be sailed by pirates to murder and pillage...the lumber, rope, nails, cotton, and everything that goes into it-is created by the True One. Humans decide how it is to be put together and how it is used.”
Derek Donais, MetalMagic: Talisman
