A freelance writer living in the outer reaches of the San Francisco Bay Area with my two sons and my wife, Sarah. I love nothing more than laughing at the crazy things my my goofy kids say. I write from the crossroads of parenting, politics, and lesbian life. My books include a memoir, Love Song for Baby X: How I Stayed (Almost) Sane on the Rocky Road to Parenthood; two collections of poems, In Praise of Falling and Showtime at the Ministry of Lost Causes; and two anthologies, Hitched! Wedding Stories from San Francisco City Hall and Dorothy Parker’s Elbow: Tattoos on Writers, Writers on Tattoos, co-edited with Kim Addonizio. In my free time, I . . . Ha! Who has free time?
