Prior to getting into web development, I was a writer, editor, and writing teaching for several years. In 2014, I published Motherhood Motherhood (Skyhorse Publishing). An Australian edition was released by Black Inc. with the title Stop Reading Baby Books: Your Surprisingly Durable Baby and You. It's also available on Audible. Click here to read some reviews.

My writing has been syndicated in the Sydney Morning Herald, iVillage Australia, Mamamia and Alternet. I’ve taken my work to the stage with The Moth, Happy Hour Story Experiment, Write Club, and Expressing Motherhood and have spoken about parenting issues with APM's Marketplace, HuffPost Live, and on a panel at the 2013 LA Times Festival of Books. My micro-memoir won a $2,500 prize from Reader’s Digest and was anthologized in The Best Life Stories: 150 Real-life Tales of Resilience, Joy, and Hope-All 150 Words or Less!
