G. Elizabeth Kretchmer is passionate about nature, relationships, women's issues, and the power of writing.

Her newest book--Writing Through the Muck: Finding Self and Story for Personal Growth, Healing, and Transcendence--was inspired by more than a dozen years teaching writing workshops to cancer patients, domestic violence survivors, and others seeking inner truth and healing.

She is also the author of two novels--Bear Medicine and The Damnable Legacy--and a short story collection, Women on the Brink. Her work has also appeared in The New York Times and various anthologies, literary journals, and other publications.

Walking is a great activity for getting the creative juices going, and having a dog forces me to walk even when I otherwise don't want to. So I guess one solution to writer's block is to get a dog!(less)
