Hi! Welcome to the Kristen Hansen Brakeman website. I write essays about parenting and daughter-ing, or whatever happens to irk me at the moment.
I’ve been published in the Huffington Post, New York Times, Washington Post, Working Mother Magazine, and LA Parent amongst others. I’ve also been featured on the WordPress Freshly Pressed page and have had guest blogs on ScaryMommy, Humor Outcasts, and the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop. Also, I was voted Most Sportsmanlike by my fifth grade kickball team.
If you are an agent, or a gazillionaire who wants to start a publishing company, I have a completed manuscript! It’s a collection of essays about raising my three daughters while also making sure my 85-year-old mom doesn’t wither away in her home, surrounded by a herd of angry cats. There’s fun stuff in there like a piece about teaching my daughter to swear, another about shopping at the stinky and loud Hollister store, and one about my husband’s prostate cancer. Well, that wasn’t so much fun now that I think about it.
If you’d like to offer me a generous contract or a three picture movie deal and a pony, please contact me at: Kbrakeman@earthlink.net
Oh, and check out my facebook page, and follow me on twitter @SandwichGenMom. Wow, that sounds so needy. Really, do as you please.
