She now lives in the Midwest with her husband, daughter, and son, the last two of whom are vigorously preventing her from writing a dissertation on ritual and forms of grace in the English devotional poetry of the seventeenth century. She dates her Mormonism to her baptism at age eight and her Mormon feminism to her discovery of polygamy at age nine. She sometimes blogs at zelophehadsdaughters.com.
