My first book, "Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink," will be published in September 2013 with Seal Press/The Perseus Books Group. I have a background in jouranlism. In the 90s I wrote for newspapers and magazines in California and Hawaii (including The San Francisco Chronicle, Honolulu Advertiser, and HONOLULU Magazine). I also worked as an associate producer for a PBS documentary series called “Livelyhood.”
In 1999, I started working for a web startup as a content strategist (an inscrutable Internet title for ‘writer/editor’) and spent the next dozen years at the epicenter of the Internet industry, through the boom, the bust, and the remarkable Web 2.0 resurgence.
I live in Oakland, CA with my husband and three kids.
