Hi, I’m Megan, a writer living in Chicago with my husband and three kids. They supply a surplus of extraordinary everyday moments to inspire my work…like the time three of four family members (including lucky me) got superlice less than 48 hours before leaving for the first kid-free vacation in three years OR that night when a bedtime chat with my 7-year-old sparked serious self reflection. Life happens, I document it.

Writing behind the scenes for clients by day* and alternating family time with friends and fermented beverages at night, I love a story and believe there are no better subjects than those near and dear.  As a reader and writer, I have an insatiable appetite for tales of truth that connect us to celebrate milestones, lick collective wounds, see things from a different point of view, laugh at ourselves and support others.

My hobbies include baby talking to my cat, avoiding Pinterest (can’t fail if you don’t try), teaching my kids throwback dances (not to brag, their tootsie roll is sick), perfecting the accent of my Steel Magnolias spirit animal (Truvy) and calculating the millions of dollars I’d owe my friends and family in therapy bills, if I actually paid them.
