About me

Occupation writer/editor
Location West Coast, Oregon
Introduction I'm a thirtysomething woman, wife, mother of three children (twin boys born to us via surrogacy and a daughter adopted from Russia), writer and editor. I used to work in religious publishing, then I regained my sanity. I edit for Literary Mama and also write a column on spirituality and motherhood at LM. I'm currently editing a literary anthology about the intersection of motherhood and politics. I adore my children and husband. Parenting is damn hard. I need more sleep.
