I’ve been published in the NEW YORK TIMES

A few weeks ago when the Modern Love Editor reached out to me, via email, my kids had just gone to bed. I screamed with such excitement, they ran out of their rooms to see about me.
We held hands, jumped, and screamed together.

The next two weeks were a series of phone calls, emails, and edits that ended with a contract.

“It’s such a great story that was wisely written,” he said in one of our conversations. I am grateful for him, and all the editors at the New York Times that made it possible for my story to reach the world.

I am also grateful to my husband, who makes me coffee every morning, and who reminds me to, “Just write, babe.”
