Kim Forde

Kim Forde writes about the art of perfecting domestic failure on her blog, The Fordeville Diaries. A former New York City resident, she is now a secret suburban convert with residual urban road rage. She can often be found in yoga pants and a minivan with her husband, three young kids and pug, managing her Starbucks dependency and healthy fear of craft stores. Kim has written for several parenting and humor blogs, and was recognized as a 2013 Humor Voice of the Year by BlogHer. She also appeared in the New York City production of Listen to Your Mother, and is a contributor to the anthologies, I Just Want to Pee Alone and You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth.

Armed with a keyboard and an addiction to storytelling, she spends more time on blogging and social media than she's prepared to admit.
