Lord knows why, but people other than me insist on letting me write for them.

Recently I wrote a post called Parent Like There’s No One Watching.  People liked it!  It was even featured a bunch of different places, including BonBon Break and The Huffington Post! I love the positive response I got from so many parents, and the way the piece really touched so many different people with a wide range of life experiences.

Lipstick_Co-AuthorBelieve it or not, I am a contributor to the insanely popular anthology You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth: And Other Things You’ll Only Hear from Your Friends In The Powder Room.  You should buy it immediately.

Here I am at Scary Mommy talking about how much I (don’t) love school.

If you’ve never checked out I Just Want to Pee Alone, you could start with my post.


Last spring I had the honor of participating in the first Metro Detroit cast of Listen To Your Mother! Here I am talking about babies and dicks.

I’ve written a time or two for In the Powder Room.

I am a contributor to NickMom.  They might wise up and realize their mistake someday, but screw it — I’m riding this wave for as long as I can.


Finally, I am one of the Super Cool Lady Writers included in the upcoming book I Just Want to Be Alone! Please order it today, before they figure out I have no business being in a book with such amazingly funny women and remove my essay.

    Hey Janel, I just wanted you to know that I love reading your posts, another benefit to being a part of the LTYM cast. I also purchased the book I Just Want to Be Alone for a girlfriend who just turned 40. She literally has everything so this book was a perfect gift. If I was organized I would have had you sign it on Sunday.
