As my nephew once said to his mom when he was about 5 years old, “Mom, I just can’t stop thinking.” I feel the same way, and when I think, I write.
I have an essay in Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life’s Transitions, which you can buy here, and in Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our 40s, which you can buy here (all proceeds go toward the Breast Cancer Fund).
I’m a regular contributor to the Huffington Post divorce section (hey — if you are twice divorced, you generally have something to say about divorce); Mommy Tracked: Managing the Chaos of Modern Motherhood, a great site addressing issues moms face today, as well as ModernMom.com; and, of course, you can find my articles on the Marin IJ Web site.
