About the Author

Alissa Morris is the creator of Urban Exodus and co-runs Hessler Creative, a boutique creative agency. She has been featured in Modern Farmer, Popular Photography, Click Magazine and Maine Home. After relocating to Maine in 2011, she created Urban Exodus to showcase not only the "living the good life" aspect of farming, but also the everyday struggles. The realistic profiles featured on Urban Exodus have created a new and growing community of ex-urbanites.

-Courtney Maum, Bestselling author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You
