Where do you live, how many kids do you have, ages?
Topanga Canyon, California, 2 boys: James & Charlie, ages 8 & 5
How are you creative post children? How has it changed since pre-baby?
Before I was a mother, I was a stand-up comic. Now that I have kids, I can’t get out to the comedy clubs as much so I write a humor column called Seriously Funny. I am also a contributor to Felicity Huffman’s website.

When do you find time to create?
When my kids are watching a movie or playing video games, I sneak off to my office and write. My youngest starts Kindergarten this year and I plan on doing a lot of my work while they are at school.
How did you hear about ExMo?
My oldest went to preschool with Lindsey Kavet’s son. I heard about the show and begged her to allow me to participate. Even though I brought a piece that was a little unconventional, they agreed to let me try it. It was a good risk! I can’t imagine not having an outlet like Expressing Motherhood. It saved my sanity.
