In my very first piece of the 2021 season, I write a personal letter to the new QB of the Indianapolis Colts, Carson Wentz. This article series is a ton of fun to research and write. The article (if you can really call it an “article”) is a message written directly to the player and whether or not we should make up or break up with that person for the upcoming season. Enjoy!
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!
