Who the hell am I? Exactly. Who the hell am I and what could you possibly get out of reading my column?
Nothing. Or everything. It really depends. It Is What It Is is nothing more than my opinion of whatever’s on my mind right here and now.
I’ve been a writer most of my life, writing for a number of Boston-area newspapers, several print & online magazines, and various marketing and publishing companies in and around the Boston area. I’m a very simple, small-town girl who loves to write and loves to tell it like it is.
Most people who follow my column say they read it because it sounds like I’m having a conversation with them from a bathroom stall. And that’s why they like it.
I’m direct. I’m opinionated. I’m emotional. I’m fair. Some say I’m funny. (I like them.) And I’ve got an incredibly long stream of consciousness with more or less a black hole of opinions on everything from life to religion to parenting to relationships to mental and physical health and everything in between.
I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a columnist. I’m also umpteen other things, including the author of the Boston Globe Local Bestseller LIFE: It Is What It Is, but you’ll have to do a little digging to find out anything more than that. So read on. I’m glad you’re here.
