About the Author

Lauren MarkmanLauren Markman is a writer, a wife and a mother. On her good days, she is entertaining. On her bad days, she is only mildly entertaining.

Either way, she tries.

In addition to writing the delightful stories on storiesforgrownups.com, she blogs about things that parents find interesting on her blog Sorry, Mom. I didn’t listen. (Sometimes she just uses that site to apologize to her mother.)

If, during any of the podcasts, you hear a rhythmic wheezing sound in the background, rest assured: That is just the family cat. Thai-Thai has a tendency to snore at Lauren’s feet while she is recording (but since the cat is 11 years old and officially retired from all cat duties, she is forgiven.)
