Now that those children are all in school, she is back full-time and serves as a senior editor. She is the author of the books “Being the Mom: 10 Coping Strategies I Learned by Accident Because I Had Children on Purpose?” and “Take Two Chocolates and Call Me in the Morning.” For more information on these titles visit www.desertbook.com.
