I've been in the customer service/food service industry for ten years and have been writing since I could hold a pencil. After becoming a mother and deciding to stay home with my son I've found more time to focus my writing from creative works to articles pertaining to motherhood, parenting, and relationships.
I've had many people be influential in my writing including all my high school english teachers and college professor's. They encourage me that I was in fact talented and should pursue my writing in any way shape or form.
I never wanted to have children, seeing them as stinky little screamers demanding every scrap of attention you could give. After having my son my world changed dramatically and I learned what love really is. By bringing him into the world I found it increased my creativity tremendously, prompting me to write even more furiously.
I focus my writing more on motherhood and parenting because I feel there are a great deal of women out there like me who could use an encouraging word. Giving tips and also letting other women know what to expect after their little angel arrives gives me great pleasure and a sense of accompllishment.
Not many books will tell you about the dirty stuff when it comes to raising babies, they prefer to gloss over how overwhelming it can be. Producing articles that cut to the real truth about being a mother and the wide range of emotions it produces lets women know that they are not alone in this adventure.
