ts-kport-tias Hi. I’m Trish.

I’m an author, speaker, former lawyer, adoptive mom, and dog lover who is figuring out happily ever after, one chapter at a time.

I live near Boston with my husband, Steve. We’ve adopted two awesome kids; we call them The Cherubs. They were 13 and 10, which means we started our parenting career in the middle. Now they’re 17 and 15, and pretty much done with being told what to do ;) We have a giant, chubby dog named Bergie who is simply the best.

Here on the website you’ll find information about my books and adventures, advice for writers, musings on faith, and information about new projects. There are also a surprising amount of chicken references. I’m not sure what that’s about.

I blog about our adoption journey (as well as other facets of my quest for happily ever after) and am working on a quarterly email project where I’ll share more personal and detailed thoughts about projects I’m working on and how we navigate life.
