An irreverent storyteller with a foul mouth and big heart, Kate Mayer is a writer, humorist, and activist writing out loud with humor and grace about parenting, social issues, midlife, and, sigh, gun violence prevention.
Mayer shares life as she lives it in Newtown, Connecticut. Since the Sandy Hook shootings, she writes and speaks often about and for Newtown, sharing stories to connect people to create kinder, safer communities.
VOICE OF THE YEAR HONOREE
She is a 2017 BlogHer Voice of the Year Honoree, and her blog was named 2017 Best Personal Blog in Connecticut by The Connecticut Press Club.
Mayer is a kick-ass copywriter, essayist, and humorist; a forever advocate for Newtown, and an alumni of the debut NYC Listen To Your Mother Show.
Her work appears all over the web, at Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, BlogHer, Scary Mommy, Mamapedia, BLUNTmoms, Purple Clover, and many other paying sites, and locally in print in the Danbury News Times, and the Connecticut Post.
MAYER SELLS OUT VILLA
She was also a pretty big deal one time, selling out the Villa Restaurant in Sandy Hook, CT, as guest speaker at the Working Women’s Forum. So there.
She seldom writes in the third person, and this is making her very uncomfortable, like a close talker, or an excessive hugger. She is also never referred to by last name, so that’s weird, but then again, she always has had significant name issues.
Mayer is a reluctant inductee into the AARP, a dedicated advocate for gun violence prevention, and together with her rather attractive husband, the co-creator of 2 quasi-adult children and 2 wannabes.
