Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I write young adult fiction, mainly retold fairy tales with a twist. I also freelance on Elance.

Since writer moms don't have a lot of cash, I scour the internet for free writing resources, and highlight them on my blog.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I love to share helpful writing information with others--especially when it's free!

I blog every weekday, sharing free ebooks, free courses, free writer's groups and articles from my internet travels. Come check it out--I enjoy connecting with other writer moms.
I have been blogging since...
