Mommy Tries is written and hosted by Jennifer Carsen – a mother, blogger, and recovering lawyer. Her goal is to capture the funnier aspects of parenting and family life and deliver them to you on a regular basis.
She is beyond thrilled to have readers in six of the seven continents (Antarctica, alas, remains a tough nut to crack). Her humor essays – essentially blog posts in hard-copy form – have appeared in New Hampshire Magazine and two Seal Press anthologies, Tied in Knots: Funny Stories from the Wedding Day and The Bigger the Better, the Tighter the Sweater.
Jennifer is a proud member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, as well as the New Hampshire Bar Association. She is also the author of the decidedly laugh-free HR How-to: Employee Retention and the Divorce Guide for Illinois.
Jennifer lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with her husband, Eric, and their perennially entertaining children, Lorelei and Nicholas.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
