Lakshmi Iyer has a certificate in creative writing from The Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University. A mother by adoption and biology, she resides with her husband and children in the Northeast US. On most days, she can be found by the stove serving up hot food. When she is not cooking, she recounts the mundane-ness of her life in startling detail on her blog (lgiyer.com) or works on her fledgling parenting webzine The Parent Voice (https://theparentvoice.com/)
