WriterMom ~ The fusion of literary art and motherhood

“I am a collector of words. I love the way words and phrases and sentences and statements and paragraphs swirl together to make literary art.”                     ~ Cornelia Becker Seigneur

My parenting book, Writer Mom Tales: Corralling the Commotion While Savoring the Chaos, Spilled Cheerios and Prayers of Real-Life Motherhood, was released in December 2010.  Finishing this book is the culmination of a five year dream! WriterMom Tales can be found on amazon WriterMom Tales on Amazon

Before that, I wrote Images of America: WEST LINN which was published by Arcadia in 2009.  It is available at local stores and online.
