Colorado-based writer Libby Horton is a recovering PhD chemist. She is currently developing a memoir of linked personal essays that explore the intersection of science, mental health, inhabiting a body, and relationships. When not putting pen to paper, she is an avid skier, a practicing gardener, a lifter of very heavy weights, and the steadfast mother of two small humans.
