About me:
I am a working Mom. I work fulltime in NYC in the Advertising industry as a computer graphics manager. I am married and became a mom at 40. Our son, Brian is 7 years old. When I was on maternity leave I wrote my first childrens book, "I have 4 feet he has 2" Its a comparison book about a family dog (maltese) comparing himself to his new baby brother. It took many years and revising before it was published. My second book, "Charlie's First Day in First Grade" got off the ground much quicker. Both these books are available on line at amazon.com I like to write/draw from my life experiences. I grew up in a large family (next book) I have worked in the advertising industry for the past 24 years and now just like Yvette and Beth's book says I'm looking to change carreers. My dream would be to write/draw more childrens books. This looks like a pretty cool website to join. Thanks for having me!

  • Hi there!
    So great to have you here - welcome!
    Just wanted to leave you a note to say that I really relate to what you write about wanting to be a children's book author - I've always dreamed of being an author as well. Creating and working on Work It, Mom! is pretty close, in terms of creativity it requires, but I do hope to write full-time one day.
