About me

Occupation Writer - Photographer - Mother
Location Northern California, United States
Introduction After graduating from Florida State University with my B.A. in Creative Writing, I moved to Northern California with my fiancé, Erik Grieve. At age 23, I started my business, Hyla Molander Photography, specializing in hand-tinted black and whites of babies and children. My photographs and writing have been published world-wide in a line of "Wise Little Souls" greeting cards and posters, sending the message that our children are both our students and our teachers. After the sudden death of my husband, Erik Hayden Grieve, 29, I began writing pieces of my memoir, Drop Dead Life. I met my new husband, Evan Oliver, on Match.com, and we married in 2007. Evan adopted the daughters I had conceived with Erik, I embraced his son from his previous marriage, and we now have another wonderful baby boy together. We live in beautiful Marin, California with our four children, where I continue writing, photography, and embracing life.
