Aud Steinfeldt has skirted the fringes of legitimate employment for a good twenty-five years. From peeling logs onsite for a mini Mcmansion outside of Telluride, to starting a custom picture frame shop with little actual knowledge or experience (which eventually worked out pretty dang well, by the grace of God!)
She sweated alongside her husband, setting up and stripping foundations, sheeting roofs, and hanging drywall until their sons got too rambunctious and she became den mother for a spell. Soon, THEY were toiling alongside Dad, and Aud was left in the proverbial dust.
Her writing "career" began at mid-life, when she realized that every story since the beginning of time will have a happy ending if a person can just get through to the real end.
Her stories and poems remind the reader that each person and situation was somehow meant to be, and is useful and beautiful in the eternal tapestry of life.
She currently resides in Montana with her husband, Todd. They're sweating side-by-side again as they build their second family home together, rediscovering the joy of partnership, while arguing over window placement/quantity.
They hope this will be a happily-ever-after retreat for their five grown kids and all their accompanying kiddies. And any other dear friend or family member who loves a great view of the Crazies and the bugling of elks.
