My Non-fiction Writing

I frequently write about family and parenting issues.  Over 80 of my articles and essays have been published in The Washington Post.  I’m also a regular contributor to Arlington and Bethesda magazines and have written for FamilyFun, Washingtonian, Child, Notre Dame Magazine, and many online publications.

Here are a few of my favorite and most recent pieces:
