If you've made it here, I assume you are an agent who was received my query. Thank you. And sincere thanks for taking the time from your stacks of queries to come further explore mine.
Here you'll learn more about me and my ideas for "These Precious Days."
If you're really going after it and make it over to the "well that was fun" page, you'll see a blog I used to write called "Adventures in Epic Time Wasting," which means you could potentiallybe wasting your time so epically by reading about how I waste mine.
I have a background in magazine writing and editing, as an entertainment editor first for more then Seventeen magazines. At both I wrote book and movie reviews, funny front-of-book pieces and did celebrity interviews.
I was a producer for j.crew.com where I wrote copy and produced photo shoots.
In 2015, I published a parenting-humor memoir called Dear Babies (see "books" page) based on my former blog of the same name. Since then I've freelanced about parenting for blogs and sites such as Redbook (read an example here).
This past year I've returned to copywriting and explored the ethically-questionable world of creating sponsored content for various brands. *this paid*
I've also written a screenplay called "Snowday" I plan on [doing something with].
"A woman stuck home with her children on a snow day texts with her four college friends.”
But to a mother, "stuck home with children" means "horror movie," and it's a comedy, so here's another description:
"A woman home with her children on a snow day texts with her four college friends. As the snow melts, complexities get revealed in this exploration of motherhood, marriage, and past and present selves.”
It’s like Tully meets Sex and the City, if the girls were all parents and texting from their various middle-class homes. Written in the vein of Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, it's a little bit of The Hours without being 100% depressing.
(Still here? Phew.)
If you'd like to learn or read more, please email me.
I am comfortable with public speaking.
And sometimes I even come out of my life in hiding I mean I do the social media I mean, of course you can find me out there!
