Hey, thanks for stopping by Work in Progress. I’m a writer with a day job and a teenage daughter. We are into girlpower, music, and fitness. She loves Broadway musicals, while I’m an ’80s-movie fan. I introduced her to Bon Jovi; she introduced me to Snapchat.

I earned a journalism degree in the early ’90s (yeah, I watched grunge kill my beloved hair rock) and spent nearly 20 years in the newspaper business as a sports writer, an assistant sports editor and a news copy editor. I’ve been published in magazines like Parenting, Volta Voices, Healthy Children, VisitSouth.com, and parenting publications across North America – just click the tabs above to see my work.

I also share my thoughts on books, feminism, sports, music, writing, and being mom to my bionic teen on my Sound Check Mama blog.

Click around the site and holler if you have any questions. And please let me know if you like something you read.
