I’m craft challenged, a lousy housekeeper, a great cook, and a political junkie. I blog about Montessori and write mom lit and memoir. I’m also a book publisher, editor of several parent humor anthologies, mom to a DS child, a 3-6 and 6-9 Montessori-trained teacher, a progressive podcaster and advocate, and wait, where am I?
I wrote a story in elementary school about a dog whose owner died, the dog went looking for him, found his grave, and stayed there forever (in dog years). My humorous side came later in life. I spent eight glorious but broke-as-hell years in theater. I did everything but act. (You can thank me later.) I was also a program director of an award-winning underground comedy venue in San Francisco for three years, the same city I was raised in . . . all while in grad school where I got my Masters in Creative Writing. Did I mention I was also teaching in a Montessori school?
My fellow bloggers always ask me “Do you ever sleep?” for which I reply “I am really three people ” (and none of us can act). I live in Northern California with my family of three (and my pet-family of three). I like to unwind in my son’s playhouse–turned mom den–reading historical fiction, sipping ice tea, and listening to Celtic music and wind chimes.
