Kristen Hansen Brakemen
Kristen Hansen Brakeman blogs about parenting and other hazardous endeavors.
She recently finished a collection of essays about the ups and downs of parenting in the Sandwich Generation (parents who have young kids at home and elderly parents to fret over). But for actual bill-paying type income, she works behind the scenes on variety shows such as the Comedy Central Roasts, The SAG Awards, and the Oscars.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three daughters, a surly cat and a timid, emotionally delicate mutt named Buddy.
