Abigail found her passion for telling stories when introduced to creative writing in the third grade. She was given a writing journal as a gift and has been carrying one around ever since. Raised in a small community in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, she came to the Portland area to attend Pacific University and she stayed for the weather. After college she put her liberal arts degree to the test and became a technical writer, designing information on the page and then later a landscape designer, designing flow in the garden. The marriage of these skills allows her to tell the technical and artistic stories of architecture.
Her free time is spent on long walks through forest and field with her family and young pup named Betty White and observing the small miracles happening in the garden.
