I'm a single mother by choice who happens to be a college professor and writer. Add the antics of a few years of infertility treatment and recurrent pregnancy loss, rants about academe and going up for tenure, and you have Something Remarkable. Now presenting life on the other side; join me, my daughter LG (12) and son Tiny Boy (5) on our adventures as a family of three!
Mothers attempting to balance parenthood and academics.
Literary Mama publishes literary writing about the many faces of motherhood. Since 2003, we have featured poetry, fiction, columns, and creative nonfiction that may be too raw, too irreverent, too ironic, or too body-conscious for traditional or commercial motherhood publications.
Fie Upon This Quiet Life
2016-17 will be my 6th year at Heartland U, a religious SLAC in a flyover state, where I teach English. This blog is about my life as an academic, mom, writer, and human being. It isn't easy being any or all of those things, but when I find myself in times of trouble, Shakespeare is my guide.
I am a (not always in this order) wife, mom, and doctoral student in English w/ a focus in Rhetoric and Composition (and my grammar still sucks). I am a native of Detroit, a graduate of the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (B.A. in English), as well as a graduate of Georgia State University (M.A. in English w/ a focus in Rhetoric and Composition. I currently reside in the Atlanta area with my husband and son. At the present time, I am an almost full-time WAHM. I take care of my son while finishing my doctoral studies, teaching online and in the evenings on campus, and running my crochet business, Hook Smart.
