I grew up on a cattle ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After spending nearly 20 years working as a copywriter in advertising, my first book, Confessions of a Slacker Mom, came out in spring of 2004 and made the San Francisco Chronicle’s best-seller list. My second book, Confessions of a Slacker Wife, was released in spring of 2005. My books and I have been featured in Time, Newsweek, USA Today, The New York Times, The London Times, and on The Today Show, Oprah, Fox News, Geraldo and dozens of other television and radio programs. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, with my husband Michael and kids Belle (7) and Joe (6), and I still work as a copywriter.

    I am a preschool teacher who thoroughly appreciated every word. I you said exactly everything I want to say on a regular basis to the parents in my class. Basically, relax a little, trust your instincts and remember the positive outcomes of some of your own childhood experiences. A “slacker mom” isn’t a negligent mom. Some of my parents are so afraid of being called a slacker (or something else) that they become paralyzed and don’t even act on what they instinctively already know without input from someone else. Thanks for the book. I plan on sharing it for sure.
