I’m currently writing Girl Warriors, a middle grade nonfiction book for fans of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, due out with Chicago Review Press in 2021.

The book tells the stories of 25 girls and women under age 25 who are rising up to reverse the climate crisis, as they inspire hope and motivate change.


I believe women will reverse the climate crisis.

That’s why I tell their stories. I became a newspaper reporter at age 21 and then moved to the Czech Republic to write for The Prague Post.  I regularly contribute to The Washington Post. 


My last feature for The Washington Post was about 4 teen activists who are hustling to save the planet — and the moms who make their work possible.

My recent essays have appeared in Ravishly, The Washington Post,  WaPo’s On Parenting,  The New York Times.

Solo moms are my heroes. I was one for a decade. I’ve written about single parenting for Yahoo, The Washington Post, and Brain, Child.
