Growing up on the shore of Lake Michigan, Golden witnessed the power of wind and waves, the silence in deep forests, and the impermanence of undulating sand dunes. In Los Angeles, she mastered the 405, the 110, the 101, and the 5 and followed them to the mountains, deserts, redwoods, and the ocean surrounding her. Currently, she calls Ten Sleep, Wyoming home and revels in the murmur of cottonwood leaves, the warmth of red dirt cliffs, and the quiet creeks that flow through deep canyons and wide meadows alike. Her writing is informed by her landscape, intertwined with the lessons they provide to her as she witnesses the synchronicity that exists between our search for ourselves and the natural rhythm surrounding us.
