When I started my blog, I never thought that my words would ever migrate off the screen and onto paper but holy crap, here I am. Then again, when I was a kid and watching Back To The Future, I never thought that talking to someone face to face on the telephone would be possible in my lifetime but here we are.
I walk out of the bathroom in my underwear, head wrapped in a towel, toothbrush in my mouth, and my 8 year old son is “FaceTiming” his BFF on his iPad. Giggling.
What a time to be alive.
Don’t ever give up on your dreams.
You can find all of these books listed under my Amazon Author page!
My piece: Voluntary Admission
“While the lows of living with mental illness can be devastating, the disease doesn’t define the lives of these contributors, and it doesn’t have to define yours, either. Some of these essays will make your heart ache, some will make you cry with laughter, but in reading this Anthology you will see that living with mental illness doesn’t equal a life of endless misery. Join us as we ‘laugh stigma into submission’ by growing attitudes of acceptance and compassion.”
My piece: Ham, Tears, And One Toilet: A Mexican Tale
Clash of The Couples is a humorous collection of completely absurd lovers’ squabbles and relationship spats. Inside you’ll read stories that will make you laugh, roll your eyes, and shiver in suspense.
My piece: Failure To Launch
The Good Mother Myth dismantles the social media-fed notion of what it means to be a “good mother.” This collection of essays takes a realistic look at motherhood and provides a platform for real voices and raw stories, each adding to the narrative of motherhood we don’t tend to see in the headlines or on the news.
My Writing Elsewhere: Magazines, Guest Post, Interviews, etc:
SZ Magazine, Anchor: Conquering Depression, Bipolar and Anxiety. Anchor contains information on the latest research, recovery techniques and real life examples of people who are living with and recovering from depression, anxiety and bipolar.
Postpartum Progress is a site that “provides the most comprehensive and accessible information available on perinatal mental illness for pregnant women and new mothers.”
It has been and still is a great source of support, education and hope for me and my family. I couldn’t be more excited to have been able to share my stories on Postpartum Progress and to be able reach out to more women.
