New Client and New (Whale) Child

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend!  I very happy to be able to announce a new client, Marlo Mack, whose fantastic blog and podcast are definitely things you should check out.  I reached out to her after reading an article about her daughter in People and then checking out her incredibly well-written blog, and am pumped to start work with her on her memoir proposal!!!!

I know I'm the last one to the party, but over the weekend, instead of fireworks and hot dogs, John and I watched Blackfish, the 2013 documentary about SeaWorld killer whale Tilikum, and it left me feeling both sad and galvanized.  One of the former trainers has written a book that published this year that talks about his time there and his advocacy for orcas.  After a lot of internet research, I found that you can also adopt a whale or shop in support of Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC) for only fifty dollars, so I am going to be a whale mama!  I'm not sure if John had me watch this because we have plans to go to the New York Aquarium this week, but after looking their website, it doesn't seem like they have any cetaceans (whales, dolphins, etc.), so I think we can travel down to Coney Island guilt-free.
