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.
Nico & Zoe Toys
Nico & Zoe is two experienced moms, with retail and internet experience, selling uncommon and artisan made high quality toys for the urban kid, age birth to six. Our inspiration is our children. As parents, we are always on the lookout for quality, locally made, funky toys. And, we don’t want them to cost too much. Most European wood toys we find are just too expensive. Handmade toys are difficult to find, no one store specializes. At Nico & Zoe, our aim is to select toys that are both uncommon and a good value. We also specifically support local, small businesses like us by finding toys that are designed, if not made, in the US. Our goal is simple: Offer high quality, small production, toys, all at one location.
