Nicole Leigh Shaw began writing as a newspaper journalist in 1999, but has been moving through all the metamorphic stages of the modern writer, except "tortured novelist." Soon she'll emerge as a butterfly or a vlogger. Nicole writes for Cosmopolitan.com, ScaryMommy.com, and has contributed to five anthologies, including the NYT Best Seller "I Just Want to Pee Alone." In addition to her four kids, two dogs and one husband, she also maintains a blog, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account.
