Episode 143: Ali Dean
Ali Dean is a Lawyer turned Author, a Mother of twins, a runner with a marathon PR of 3:01. She is a #1 Amazon sports fiction bestseller. She hails from Vermont and now lives in Colorado with her husband, boy-girl twins, and golden retriever Pancake.
Ali always loved to read, but found that there weren’t enough fiction books out there featuring girl athletes. So, she decided to work on that. Like the heroines in her books, Ali is an athlete, with running and skiing her favorite sports these days. When she’s not pursuing an outdoor adventure, Ali’s less healthy passions include ice cream, coffee, and beer.
In this episode, Ali and I talk about the big career change she made when she started writing full time and we talk a lot about family life and how to balance being a work from home mom. Ali has a great perspective on this and I know you’ll love our chat!
