I balance writing with motherhood in the suburbs near Portland, Oregon.
Read my blog to hear how I juggle writing, teaching, and speaking with motherhood and everything else.
I have written hundreds of articles for magazines, newspapers, and online publications and have appeared on Good Morning America.
I teach e-mail classes throughout the year and in-person classes in the Portland, Oregon area. Click here to view my upcoming class schedule.
My first book is Writer Mama, How to Raise a Writing Career Alongside Your Kids (Writer’s Digest Books, March 2007).
My second book is Get Known Before the Book Deal, Use Your Strengths to Grow an Author Platform, coming in October 2008 from Writer’s Digest Books.
In addition to writing, I speak and teach at writing conferences, literary events, and writing programs around the country.
