Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Kathleen Furin

Kathleen Furin lives in Philadelphia with her husband and their two daughters, ages three and eight months. She is working on a novel. “Eleven” is her first published piece. Furin has a MSW and is completing her certification as a childbirth educator, but mostly is a stay-at-home mama. To pay the bills, she is working on a study of pre-term birth, and she writes by typing one-handed whenever she can, which is usually during naptime or the middle of the night. (With her other hand she can hold the nursing baby, fold the laundry, open the mail, and eat the chocolate which she promises to stop buying but which somehow ends up in her cart each shopping trip!)
