My work has taken me inside San Quentin prison, and to deepest Afghanistan. My path to writing has been circuitous. I’ve worked for a senator and a biotech start-up, made ads for Nike, and helped launch women’s sportswear retailer Lucy.com. I went to Stanford and got an MBA. I’ve lived in Kenya, and the Haight. I love the Sawtooth Mountains, Neil Young, my 5am running club, and climbing mountains. I wish I could play guitar and sing, but I have no talent. I’m a wannabe “rancher.” Check out www.idahorocky.com
My work has appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle ELLE, Marie Claire, MORE Magazine, O the Oprah Magazine, California Sunday Magazine, Sunset, ESPN. My first book Girls Who Run the World is due out in October with Random House Delacorte.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
