I am a Detroit-based writer with articles featured in sources both online and in print, including The Washington Post, Upworthy, NPR, Thrillist, Time’s Extra Crispy, Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Day, Town and Country, AOL MapQuest, Redbook, Scary Mommy, All Day Media, xojane and The Huffington Post. I am the featured contributor for Detroit in the US News and World Report’s 100 Best Cities To Live and am excited to expand my professional portfolio to include advocacy related articles for Autism Speaks.org.
I have an education in English, with a focus in Creative Writing. I write on a wide variety of topics, reported and otherwise. Detroit is, and always will be, my home. It’s a fabulous time to be a food writer in the Motor City!
I love to write articles that are of relevance to millenials, foodies, women, mothers, and families, with a literary arc. I have a nerdy penchant for stories about history, with a focus on historical medical, food, cultural and bookish events.
I have a well maintained blog, established in 2012. Several posts have reached “viral” status, garnering over 1 million views, including this one: Fat Girl In A Green Bathing Suit and this one: I Am The Prettiest Wife In The World. I have several collections of poetry published in print, some of which can be found here: Chances Are , Five Magazine and Lyceum (Fall 2012, Winter 2012, Fall 2013, Winter 2013, 2014). My creative non-fiction has appeared in several literary magazines, including, most recently, my reflections on my relationship with Ernest Hemingway for Catapult.
I would love for you to check out my Facebook page or connect with me on twitter @momof4istired. Or please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
