Hello! We're Lisa and Anthony.
Neither preppers nor hippies, the two of us are hip to homesteading. Our motto is: Ditch your lawn and the rat race, at your own pace.
We met a decade ago in Seattle, where we got married and lived in tiny apartments with hardly any space to grow things. But in 2017, we moved to the St. Louis, Missouri, area, where Lisa's from. We could buy a house here with land enough for a garden and look hopefully toward... maybe not actual retirement, but a good life that we define for ourselves.
Our Background and Other Writings
In addition to editing and writing for this blog, Lisa is also author of a yogi detective series, the Dreamslippers, and a book of poetry inspired in part by yoga and nature, Broom of Anger. A longtime journalist, she has written numerous articles for publications such as the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Poets & Writers Magazine, and Crosscut, to name just a few. She writes on a wide range of topics here - from asanas to zucchini - building on her previous experience as a lifestyle editor and feature writer.
For the past 13 years, Lisa has written and designed game stories for a living, mostly for a 30+ female audience. She's currently the owner of a successful game design and writing studio called Brunette Games, and Anthony has joined her in that business. A former publisher, grant manager, and brand manager, Anthony is a popular writer for Cat in the Flock, too, covering such trendy topics as how to render fat and something he calls 'chaos gardening.'
We hope you enjoy our stories of triumph and tribulation - and maybe even find something here that will inspire you toward a life of greater self-sufficiency, independence, health, and happiness.
