My book Running All over the World, adapted from a blog I wrote during our travels, is a nonfiction account of our five-plus years of flying, runni... more
  • everything in between

    by Caitlin Elizabeth
    EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN is a brilliant, daringly honest memoir, taking the reader around the world and back again, the story of a woman letting go of the past and society’s conditioning to find her freedom. This book of essays, with loads of sarcasm and a very obvious feminist bent, is best described as eclectic, chaotic in a good way, refreshing, and a permission slip to be imperfect. As a twenty something, Caitlin decides to quit her soul-sucking job to live in South America, a decision th... more

She quickly became pregnant, but instead of the idyllic interlude she'd imagined as she settled into married life and planned for their family, their love was soon tested by the ghosts of Vern's past--a town, a house, a fa... more
