I'm a mother of 12 children with no higher education. After my youngest went to school, I saw an ad for web content writers and dug in. Today, I have a full time job writing for a nonprofit organization and I'm making a real contribution to my family's expenses.
In addition to my full time writing job, I've had my work appear in Kveller and Babble. Moreover, I'm kind of known in certain circles for my political blogs, which I do outside of business hours as a labor of love for my adopted country, Israel.
My married children, and especially my daughters, tell me I'm an inspiration to them. They realize there's life after kids. And it gives them hope for their own after 50 upcoming experiences.
