I am a humor writer, wife of a dentist, mother of 3 and purchaser of shoes. I have a JD from U of Iowa, and an MA and a BA from BYU, but I’m still trying to convince my family I know what I’m talking about. When not writing or watching bad television, I can be found answering the question: “What would happen if I…”
I spent the first half of my life in Connecticut. In high school, I was uprooted from my home and moved to Utah. I have been trying to move back East ever since. I’m starting to think it will be just as easy to change that goal to moving to the Far East.
I attended Brigham Young University and got a degree in English, realized I had no employable abilities and got an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. The only full time job I could get was in Yemen so I went to the University of Iowa law school.
Then I married a dentist. My husband balances being very lovable with being slightly neurotic. Sometimes, or often, I am the deciding factor on how that scale balances.
We ended up in Helena, Montana and now have three kids: 10, 8, and 6. (I have decided to not write more here to respect their privacy because I do not respect their privacy anywhere else on this website.)
While in Helena, I became a member of the Montana bar, but my goal is to never actually practice law unless forced. I have taught at a college and done some editing, but basically I am doing my best to let people know it is OK to live in suburbia while continually wondering how you got here.
That is me (or I). Who are you?
