    • Dear Family: Let’s Get Organized (Maybe)

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on January 22, 2013

      A new book says I should run my family like a business. That’s all good and well, but I don’t run a business, and if I did, I wouldn’t do it very well. Regardless, I still liked the book Family Inc. Now I have to do is convince Johan that we should start having family meetings […]

    • Be Brave, Be Vulnerable, Screw with Your Character

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on August 15, 2012

      This talk about vulnerability really got me thinking. So I learned that vulnerable people are joyous, creative and loving. WTF? I’m totally vulnerable and am in constant need of a Valium for which I have no prescription. I can base a whole fictional protagonist on this talk. And on the researcher, Brene Brown

    • Need August Downtime

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on August 9, 2012

      I’m the new books reviewer and blogger for Parents Magazine and Parents.com. If you’re not busy watching the Olympics, please check out my new column called Mom Must Read. The job is super cool. It requires a lot of reading. But the upside is that I get all of these free books. Who cares about […]

    • How to Pitch a Story Idea

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on February 22, 2012

      “Every writer I know has trouble writing.” ~Joseph Heller via Lisa Romeo I recently received an email from a woman who pays me to edit her pitches and articles. Side note: I love to advise, edit and teach writers, so if your work needs help, encouragement or vodka, I’m your girl. A huge bonus is […]

    • Back in Business

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on October 18, 2011

      Writing is not like riding a bike. Even though my retro orange bicycle is covered in a year’s worth of garage dust and post-Irene mud, I can hop on that thing in five seconds flat. My butt might get dirty, but I’d fly through my driveway like I owned it. Wait, I do own it. […]

    • Early Reviews for Redemption

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on March 15, 2011

      Writing a book is like opening up my bathrobe in Target when it’s really crowded. I feel as if I’ve bared my soul through my latest work, Redemption. Along with Stacey Lannert, I’ve done my best to use language to convey her life’s story. It’s a grim tale of a childhood of sexual abuse that […]

    • Redemption Comes Out Today

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on March 8, 2011

      I’m honored to be the co-author of Stacey Lannert’s memoir, called Redemption, which comes out today. Today happens to be International Women’s Day, a most excellent time to promote awareness about child sexual abuse. I met Stacey in 2002 when I wrote about her for Glamour magazine. She was still in prison then. When she […]

    • Today is Gloriously Unproductive

      Posted by Kristen Kemp on February 16, 2011

      This morning, my writing to-do list was full. I was going to finish two blog posts, wrap up a Facebook group project and work on a plot for this teen novel I’m cooking up. I felt rested and inspired. Today was going to be a good writing day. Then I decided to go to yoga. […]
