Reintroduce Yourself Blogfest

This morning, Regina and I are participating in an online festival of networking!

We are a new blog but we aren't new bloggers.  Both of us were proud members of Swagger Writers for almost two years before forging into the blogosphere alone (er, together) to create something we love.

Regina is the mother of three beautiful girls, two of whom have cerebral palsy.  She mostly writes poetry these days but is also a wonderful novel writer!

Juliet is a college professor, children's writer and also a mother of three.  She has a picture book, some short stories and a play published by various presses.  She also writes for the SCBWI-IL Prairie Wind and just handed revisions of a contemporary YA off to her agent.

Please join us on this new journey by "following" our blog (left side of screen) or leave a comment below so that we can return the favor!

  11. Oh, I hope your agent loves your revisions! I'm an academic, too (though a researcher), so I feel your pain on time restraints... or maybe I feel my pain and just assume you have them too.

  12. Hi Regina and Juliet! So nice to meet you.

  13. Hi Hart! I definitely have time restraints and always feel guilty when I'm at one thing and not doing another. Right now, I am feeling guilty for responding to bloggers when I should be writing or revising manuscripts!

  26. I keep thinking "Regina is a Mom who writes poetry. Juliet is a Mom who teaches college. They fight crime!"

    Can't wait to see what adventures are in store at the blog!
