Lisa Moskowitz Sadikman is a writer and editor living in Oakland, California with her husband and two young daughters. Her work has appeared in Literary Mama, Salon,
US Airways Magazine, Red Herring, Business 2.0, as well as Travelers' Tales Greece, and The Real Las Vegas: Life Beyond the Strip. Lisa's currently tackling the issues of feminism and the loss of equality on the domestic front once kids enter married life. She's also working on a series of essays about a road trip she took with her mom and other epiphanies of motherhood. As a parent, Lisa doesn't often use the skills that seemed so crucial in her previous life as an Internet User Interface Strategist, but she does draw on her love of make-believe when she plays with her princess-obsessed four-year-old. You can read about her journey into motherhood at her blog, Chicken Duty.
