Sally Cole-Misch is a writer, author and environmental communicator who advocates for the natural world
through work and play. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and a
master's degree in environmental education and international water policy from the University of Michigan. Throughout her career, she's communicated about our essential connections with nature, how our lifestyles impact the planet we live on, and the role we can play to restore and protect our water, land and air.
Sally took a crazy leap into fiction through Stanford University's writing certificate program in fiction, where her wonderful professors and fellow students helped her to complete the first draft of The Best Part of Us. She resides in the Great Lakes region with her husband and son, although her year isn't complete without a trip to mountains to ski. She also enjoys hiking, kayaking, sailing, gardening, a hearty laugh with friends, the wonder of surprise, and the optimism that nature's beauty always provides.
