Wendy Tremayne meandered throughout the publishing and music industries before becoming the creative director for Green Galactic, a pop-culture marketing company. She has since formed a musical group named Moxie, some of whose songs can be heard on reruns of Dawson's Creek, and has produced freelance publicity material and conceptual artwork. In 2006 she decided to live a post-consumer life and moved from New York City to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. She teaches yoga and Sufi philosophy and also makes and sells botanicals from wildcrafted plants in the Chihuahuan desert. She is the author of The Good Life Lab:Radical Experiments in Hands-On Living.
