Mom, when can I have an adventure?

Like what?

You know, an adventure! With tunnels and secret passageways and booby traps. And chasing. Every good adventure has chasing.

Speaking of adventures, there’s a doozy coming up, and though I doubt it will include chasing, I hope you’ll join in.

On April 29, 2012, the Listen to Your Mother show is returning to Austin. LTYM is a live production of local writers reading their original essays about motherhood. Since its birth in 2010 by the talented Ann Imig, this national series has expanded to 10 cities, including New York, DC, San Francisco and of course, Austin!

Last year I was one of 13 cast members and this year am serving as co-director/producer with the wonderful Wendi Aarons. I’m honored and excited!

If you or anyone you know is interested in submitting an essay, we would LOVE to read it. Everyone has a mother story, even if you’re not a mother!

And if you missed last year’s performance, check this out.

Thanks for your enthusiasm and support!


  1. No chasing? What’s the point?

    Congrats on your role in putting together this awesome show. I attended last year and loved it. I’m thinking of submitting…or at the very least attending again.

    Looking forward to seeing what you guys put together for this year!

  2. I am thrilled for you

    I am so thrilled for all the stories you will hear, and all the life changing women you will meet.

    So very happy for these good, good things in your life. It IS a good life, isn’t it?
