Smart, clean, lively prose: That’s what I deliver. My specialties are food writing, parenting, diet and fitness, and copywriting. Whether it’s an article about canned tuna, a parenting piece about life with a newborn, a feature about how blogging can save your diet, or a reading group guide for the latest bestseller, I always find a new insight, an illuminating angle. I’ve been writing for more than 20 years, projects as varied as restaurant reviews, 1200-word features, and catalogs, and I’ve never missed a deadline. My first cookbook, Parents Need to Eat Too: Nap-Friendly Recipes, One-Handed Meals & Time-Saving Kitchen Tricks for New Parents, was published by William Morrow in February 2012.
