ebook collection

I always dreamed of being a writer. Starting in elementary school I would pen stories, hoping they’d be interesting enough to read. by someone.

I wrote, through high school, college, teaching, and into motherhood. Usually I had a pretty small audience: me, and maybe my mom.

About seven years ago I started writing articles for parenting publications. That was a pretty wild thing. I actually got paid for something I wrote! Today I’ve had the opportunity to write for a variety of media: magazines, websites, and books. Cool!

I’m well aware that I couldn’t have done it without an audience, folks who were interested to read what I had to say. You all have been wildly supportive of all my little schemes and dreams.

Thank you, dear reader. And Mom, thank you, too!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
