Being a mom and an author is kind of like juggling bowling pins that are on fire while balancing on a ball in the middle of a lake of gasoline.   For a while, I thought I was relatively alone in this death-defying stunt.  But I have recently discovered that I couldn’t be more wrong.

The Writer Mom Podcast is, as the tagline goes, made by indie author moms, for indie author moms. I was fortunate enough to meet the wonderful host Daphne James Huff on the Indie Author Life facebook group; with is heavily populated with indie author parents.   She mentioned she was launching this podcast and I wanted to cry with relief.

“I’m not alone!” I wanted to shout.

Along with co-host JR Frontera, Daphne delivers some much-needed advice, laughter, and comradery twice a month. I never miss an episode, and that’s not just because she interviewed me.

Yep, yours truly recorded an interview. 

The weekend before the interview went live, Daphne and her husband took a trek out to Seattle. It just so happened that I was attending Geek Girl Con that weekend and so we found an hour to meet over coffee. It was so nice to just chat without children or author duties tugging at us. Daphne is a pretty awesome gal.

So, sit back, grab a cup of something (coffee, tea…wine, no judgment here!) and take a listen.
