My family on the red carpet

My family on the red carpet of Moms’ Night Out

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I’m a full-time screenwriter and I consider it a real privilege. I know there are a lot of aspiring screenwriters out there, and getting from “aspiring” to “working” is a hard thing. Continuing to work can be even harder.

My husband is an independent producer, and we’re the parents of two great kids, who have way more energy than we do sometimes. Every day I struggle with the balance between being a good mom, a good wife, a good writer, a good worker… wearing all the hats with style always looks easy on someone else and hard when you actually try it.

I’m going to write about all my hats here (when I have the time!) and hopefully blog about some new projects coming to fruition in the next year. I’d love to hear from you, if you’re juggling hats too!
