I have been writing Shh! Momma’s Writing! since 2006. It started out on a platform that has long become extinct (I can’t remember the name of it) titled Lea’s Spot. I had no idea what I was doing was also called blogging. I started it after my fourth child was born and she decided that I couldn’t leave for work. (She was afraid of everyone.) I soon discovered Blogger and migrated everything over under the title “Job Description, Ha!!”. After a couple years, that title had no meaning. However, what I found myself saying, over and over and over…was “Shh!! Momma’s Writing! And thus, this spot was born. I stayed with Blogger up until 2013 and decided that I was tired of finding my work ending up elsewhere with not much recourse and invested in my writing with an upgrade to WordPress. I write about life, marriage, divorce, parenthood and anything else that I run into. It is a gambit of information that constantly flows throughout my mind and life. So hang on.
I have a BA in English and Communications from Robert Morris University and a Paralegal certification from Boston University. I work as a Banker in a bank that resides in a grocery store. Go figure!! I have also been a bartender, a marketer, a legal proofreader and a real estate title underwriter. I’ve been a busy girl.
I have four children ages from ages 21 to 6. (I had a little private party when my last one potty trained.) They are regulars in my blog since they remain an active source of entertainment.
Now, about me. My name is Lea, like pea, not Leah. I do answer to pretty much everything though. I live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh PA. Among my peers, when I’m out and comfortable, I am a ’69 baby who refuses to grow up. I’m an opinionated, whole thinking person who just can’t believe that everyone can’t think for themselves. In fact, I insist upon it. Leo all the way. I love music and free thinking. I love my country and all the freedoms and the responsibilities that come with it. I research my families genealogy and I’m absorbed in history and literature. I love to cook and love cookbooks. My grandmom taught me how to crochet when I was six and I’ve been crafting ever since. I am an avid gardener and see no reason why you shouldn’t grow food when you can.
