About Me

Is it just me, or does that pic beg for the caption… “You look really familiar, but I can’t remember your name, so I’m just going to fake smile”?  It does to me, anyway.

Right, about me.  I am a wife to my amazing husband, a stepmother of two, adamant sports fanatic, animal lover, small business owner, and writer.  I graduated Magna cum Laude with a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri but ended up starting my own business building websites.  Go figure.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a love for writing.  In fact, my mom still has my very first book I wrote when I was five.  It was an epic tale about a rat named Steve who lived in a sewer and ate large mouth bass.

Oh, I love the outdoors as well, by the way.  I guess that’s why Steve specifically ate large mouth bass.  Love me some fishing.  And golf.  Basically anything active, unless it’s Sunday morning and I am hungover making food for Football Sunday.  Then I’m not leaving my house and five TVs.

I started playing fantasy football in 2014 thanks to some excellent friends who got me hooked instantly.  I combined my love of football with my passion for writing and …. well, here we are.

You can find my work on the award-winning Fantasy Footballers and at FantasyPros.  I also appear sporadically on podcasts.  Every Wednesday and Friday during the regular season I go Live on Twitter (@stepmomlauren) to discuss starts and sits for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday.  I post those videos to YouTube so don’t forget subscribe to my YouTube channel and click on the bell for notifications!
