About me

Occupation Writer/Editor
Location Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Introduction I'm a mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, writer, editor, jokester, whiner, reader, eater, etc., who likes lists that end with "etc.". I started this blog because I found myself having more and more conversations, with other women in particular, about how we're all struggling to get through the days, weeks, years, etc. (!). When I turned 40 this year, I noticed the conversations going a bit deeper—I find I'm talking to more people about more things that are endlessly fascinating (the people and the talks!). I thought we could have a laugh as we chat, but also help each other as we struggle through the madness...

Interests Aside from work and obsessing over my almost-eight-year-old daughter and her school, figure skating, soccer, gymnastics and general happiness, I also write fiction. I am working on draft two of my first novel and hope to send it "out there" by the end of this year. I have the beginnings of a children's novel in the works (exact age level not yet determined), and a brill idea for a non-fiction book that will make me very rich and very thin. I also didn't realize when I wrote this section that this would all end up as hyperlinked text, and I find that absolutely comical. As an editor, I must point out that in various places where you see a space (like right after this closing parenthesis), there should be a comma. The program assumes I'm starting an exciting new topic. And hilarity ensues.
