Lenz Family 2014

Briefly…

My name is Lyz. I’m a writer, blogger, and digital and social media strategist. In addition to this fine site, I also write regularly for the Huffington Post and Mom.me.

My writing has appeared in New York Times Motherlode, The Butter, The Rumpus, The Toast, Aeon, The Guardian, Jezebel, The Hairpin,  Forbes, Real Weddings, AOL, Yahoo Shine and I’ve been syndicated on MSNBC and MSN Glo. My short stories have been published on Storyglossia and the Iowa Writes Project and one was just turned into a movie, which premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival.  (You can see clips of my work here.)

Oh, you mean personally…

I’ve been married for 10 years. And my husband and I live in a 90-year-old house that we love and fill with antique and garage sale finds. I love to run. I’ve run four half marathons in five years and my running helps me counteract my chicken nugget addiction. I have a uterus and I use it. I’m the mom to two small dragons.

This blog…

On this blog, I write about babies, cervices, and how much I hate the pants. The blog has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, and listed as Mom.me’s Top 50 Mom Blogs.

The book…

I’m currently working on a memoir in essays about faith, family and feminism. I am represented by Saba Sulaiman of Talcott Notch Agency. Should you be interested in the book, email her.
