Trista Osburn grew up in Brighton, Michigan. She studied art and photography at Washtenaw Community College and enjoys writing poetry. Her connection to nature and her desire to help people intensified during her twelve years of being a Girl Scout. Trista loves backpacking, road trips, and waterfalls. She crochets dolls and toys for children because play is key to promoting children’s cognitive, social, and emotional growth. Now with her first book, Dream Catcher Lullabies, she intends to help children from all backgrounds realize their dreams and to reach for the stars. She currently lives in the Portland, Oregon, area with her husband, Nic.
