On Monday evening Dec 20 at 8 pm EST I’ll be talking to stepmom bloggers Peggy Nolan and Erin Erickson LIVE on their Blog Talk Radio Show (you might hear my children yelling in the background!) Tune in, listen, call in, send in questions….hope to “talk” to you then!
On Thursday November 18 I’ll join a panel of experts including Mary Kelly-Williams, Susan Davis Swanson, Jacque Fletcher, Susan Wisdom and more on Stepmom Magazine’s FB page. We’ll answer YOUR questions about stepmother reality from 1 pm – 5 pm EST. Hope to “see” you there.
Deesha Philyaw, co-founder with her ex-husband Mike of coparenting101.com, recently interviewed me, and then conducted a stepmom roundtable discussion with some of the stepfamily bloggers you may know and love, including Heather Hetchler of CafeSmom.com and Bridgett Lemos-Norman of In the Blender. I sound a lot like Minnie Mouse in the interview–what’s new? can I have a voice coach, please?–but I think you’ll really like hearing these other women talk about their lives married to men with children!

Ah, that hot, vexed topic: money. Divvying it up can be tricky in any partnership. Now throw in some kids from a previous marriage, and it becomes more complicated still. Merged? Partially merged? Totally separate bank accounts? Peggy Nolan and Erin Erickson tackle this topic with their guest Kat Nelson-Reid, a stepmom and financial planner, on tonight’s Stepmom’s Toolbox Radio Show at 8 pm EST.
