My name is S.A. Snyder, and I’m a writer, editor, and oral storyteller. My background is in conservation, so I have a particular passion for nature, the outdoors, and science. I also love exploring the world, inner and outer. I invite you to explore what I discover about people and our relationship to the planet through my blog posts and books. By sharing my personal experiences, I hope to inspire you to find and express your true nature of Love. Leave a comment, share your thoughts–and mine–with friends, but most importantly, take good care of yourself and others.
My memoir, “Plant Trees, Carry Sheep” (2019), is about volunteering in Scotland at a spiritual retreat. It’s available now on Bookshop.org, Amazon world-wide, Nook, Barnes & Noble, and other platforms. I published a spinoff to my memoir in 2020, and another book about creating your own retreat at home, for times when you need self-care. The 4th edition of my travel guide, “Scenic Driving Montana,” came out in May 2021 and is the perfect travel companion through my home state.
