Q: What would your characters say about you?
A: I like to think that Sara, the bear wife, would want to be part of my parent friend group, but I suspect she would tease me for my city-bred ways and middling outdoor survival skills. (Like Aaron, her husband, I enjoy trail running, but unlike him I’ve never seen a grizzly while running – just black bears.) She would probably also note that I’m really, really bad at yoga, whether with a baby or without.
