from mom to writer
My journey as a writer began after I had my babies. In order to survive this often wild and harried experience of being at home with small children, I made a promise to myself: I would use my creativity as a lifeline. It all started with a blog and a self-portraiture class. When I put myself, instead of my kids in front of the camera lens, I began the healing process out of depression. The next thing I stumbled upon was memoir writing, which finally felt like a safe place to share what had previously consumed me so secretly. Now, I can't imagine not having shared that part of my path.
I am currently a contributor to Parentmap magazine and writing my first memoir.
