ABOUT ME

After earning my MFA in fiction, I took a long break from writing before "A Mother's White Privilege," an essay about the riots in Louisville, went viral. I began a career with an amazing team of women at Scary Mommy who valued social justice, connectedness, feminism, and equality. With Scary Mommy, I indulged my snarky side, but more importantly, I wrote articles that shed light on topics like mental illness, racial equality, LGBTQIA+ issues, toxic relationships, and parenting hardships. 

At the same time, I was lucky enough to write with ADDitude Magazine, both in their print magazine and online, about my experiences with ADHD.

In 2020, I began writing young adult novels under the name Annabeth Chatwin.
