Hi, I’m Genny

Before having kids, I was a manager at a global computer company, busy climbing the corporate ladder. But after quitting my job to be a stay-at-home mom, I rediscovered my love of writing and set out to pursue my dream of becoming an author. Today, I live in Idaho with my husband and two kids, where I balance writing with motherhood, and love both. If you’re interested in learning more about my books, author podcast, speaking engagements, or anything else, you can check out my About page, 17 Things About Me or How I Got Started Writing. Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.

Why I Blog

In the writing world, we’re always talking about finding your unique writing voice. And while I felt like I had found that in my work with children’s books, I didn’t yet have that comfort of writing from my heart in other areas. But blogging and sharing about my family, my dreams, my challenges, and my experiences helped me to open up and find that voice. It also made me realize how passionate I am about being a mom and it made me live with a deeper appreciation for everyday moments. (When you’re writing posts several times a week, you’re constantly reflecting on experiences and wanting to share them with others.) And possibly one of my favorite things that blogging has done is open the door to connection with all of you. When you find that connection through a blog or other writing, it’s like walking into a room with friends, making yourself comfortable, and becoming part of a community that feels like home. I hope you’ll find that here!
