Abby is a human rights advocate interested in economic solutions to social/cultural problems. In 2017 she co-founded Empower Her Network, an organization that paves a path for survivors of human trafficking with a will for independence by breaking down housing barriers, financing education, and uncovering employment opportunities.

When her children turned three and four in what felt like one season, she resigned from her post as a high tech executive to pursue writing. I Liked My Life (St. Martin’s Press) is her debut novel. It has been published in six languages, hit the bestseller list in Germany, won the Airbud Award in audio, and was a 2017 Goodreads Reader Choice finalist. She and her family divide their time between West Hartford, Connecticut and Park City, Utah. When not writing or watching the comedy show that is her children, she enjoys reading across genres, skiing, and hiking. Oh, and travel. Who doesn’t love vacation?
