Bio: I am a mom, a wife, a writer, a blogger & (most important) a Former-Reality-TV-Star. Really. You can Google it. I've been featured in Huff Post a couple of times (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/empty-nest-syndrome-kids_n_62bad8a9e4b080fb670a224b) and (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/lose-friends-new-years-resolution_n_61b79733e4b00aca716a69cc) and was in the inaugural cast of "Listen To Your Mother, Boston" sharing my original essay, "The Thinking Girl's Thong." I was featured in NPR’s “This I Believe” radio series yet I'd say “Most Popular 1984” is pretty high on my list of achievements (next would be that home improvement reality TV show of 2003 but my kids forbid me to talk about it anymore). I would leave my husband for Jon Stewart, either Hemsworth brother or Sawyer from "Lost" and he is well aware of it (my husband ... not Sawyer.) I am happiest writing and raising four kids (now young adults) yet I'd trade any or all of them for great shoes. I drink WAY too much wine if the music is awesome ... I spend WAY too much time watching, listening & absorbing true-crime ... & I still have a bestie from fifth grade. I make sure my daughter knows: that is a beautiful thing. Fave published pieces include "Little Baby Fug," "The Thinking Girl's Thong" and "Friendvy." My collection of essays, A Momoir, is a work in progress and various chapters are posted -- agent interest is welcomed!
