Fran Bell Baruch quit her career in television to focus full-time on being the perfect mom. She quickly realized the foolishness of that notion and returned to her childhood dream of becoming a writer. Her essays have been published in Newsweek’s My Turn, The Sacramento Bee, LA Mom’s Blog, as well as linked to in NYT’s Motherlode. She was also an Assistant Editor at Narrative Magazine.
Fran is a soon-to-be empty nester who lives in Los Angeles with her husband of twenty-five years, one of her two children, and her two rescued Labrador Retrievers. When she’s not writing, hiking with her dogs, or sharing adoption photos of canines on social media, she’s developing projects for television and features. Fran can be found on Linked In.
