My Story

I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000, with a bachelor's degree in the life cycle of cacti. Because there is no actual career for a person with that degree, I did the obvious thing: enrolled in law school. I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2004, this time without honors. As an attorney, I represented and counseled clients on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: how to be neurotic, when to use “your” versus “you’re,” and how to dispute an invoice. After practicing law for 11 years, I decided to turn my back on the supportive, nurturing environment of the legal world and pursue my passion for writing. In my spare time I eat way too much sugar, hone my ability to be indecisive, and ardently support vegan causes. I also love a good cheeseburger.

Ok, not all of that is true. I did graduate magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania (“.01 away from summa!” as my mother likes to remind me; “What, you couldn’t do an extra credit assignment?”), but with a bachelor’s degree in English. I graduated from Columbia Law School in 2004 and practiced law for 11 years. Writing had always been a passion of mine and finally, after having children and deciding to leave the law, I felt that it was the right time to pursue this passion.

Why Weekends Suck for Parents

Ok, so I’m about to whine and throw myself a pity party even though I have so many things to be grateful for, most especially my children. And, no, the fact that I’m whining doesn’t mean I don’t love my children or deserve my children. I love them more than anything in this world and I will send your child a Tickle Me Elmo (batteries included) if you mess with them. Capiche?
