About Me

Kim Tracy Prince

Writer.  Web Editor.  Blogger.

 ktphop@gmail.com

Welcome to my personal blog.  I am a freelance writer published mostly on the internet.  Apart from the many topics I have covered, I have written an advice column, a news column about women online, various parenting and travel columns, and I was the features editor at CBS Local Los Angeles for two years.

I started this site in 2004 to tell stories about my first pregnancy and new motherhood.  Once the novelty of parenthood wore off, I just kept going.

I live in the faux-suburbs of Los Angeles with my husband and two little boys. Before having children, I worked in television production on entertainment and lifestyle reality shows.

In my “down time,” I enjoy reading, hiking, and a tasty cocktail.  My favorite games to play with my kids are Go Fish, LEGO Star Wars for Wii, and “Who can clean up the fastest?”  I make an excellent chocolate chip cookie.
