Abby Byrd mothers, frets, writes, teaches, and corrects other people’s grammar in an undisclosed location on the East coast of the United States of America. Her work has appeared on Huffington Post and Scary Mommy, among other sites, and in three anthologies. She is seeking an agent for a memoir about her decade-long search for a partner and why correct use of the semicolon may not be the most important quality in a mate. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
Abby also does freelance editing. Contact her at email@example.com. Don’t bother sending admonitions or prayers. She has a robot monkey assistant that filters that shit out.
