Member Since
October 2011

I am a mom, comedian and the host of These Mums Write podcast.

I self-published my debut novel, The Tokyo Cover Girls in 2016, a thriller based on my teenage experience in Japan's fashion industry and am now working on a MomCom about my middle age experience as a suburban working momma.

Right now, it's called The Mom Con. Or The Con Mom, I forget.
