Phaedra Hise has covered subjects including entrepreneurship, small aircraft accidents, big problems raising kids, and what it feels like to rev a motorcycle around a racetrack at over 100 mph. She is an instrument-rated private pilot, a triathlete, a competitive cyclist, a scuba diver, and the cofounder of a growing literary nonprofit, and was an insider on two company startups.
Her award-winning work has been anthologized and published in national magazine, including AARP, Salon, Popular Mechanics, and Ladies Home Journal, and she has covered the world of entrepreneurship as a staff writer for Inc. and contributor to the Wall Street Journal and Fortune Small Business. She has written four other books and lives with her very messy teenaged daughter in Richmond, Virginia. [from The Secret Lives of Hoarders (2011)]
