A while back I decided to reinvent myself a bit and pursue my dream. In fits and spurts that I like to call Mom Time, which is measured not in minutes or hours or days, but in stolen moments—you know, those moments between school drop-offs and pick-ups and homemade lunches and transportation to and from activities and play-dates and supervising homework and accommodating orthodontist appointments and my sometimes day-job—moments which are few and far between, but together, amount to something, I have made some changes.
I started writing. Freelance. And then I stopped, side-tracked by work and family and all sorts of other excuses. But I would like to start again. To be fair, I had some success. I’m no Stephenie Meyer or Anne Lamott yet, but someday, maybe…
Anyway, here’s a list of my published works to date…more soon, fingers crossed!
