Recovering Lawyer and Writer

Mandy Hitchcock is a writer and still-recovering lawyer who thinks that “knowing what you want to do when you grow up” might just be a crock. She is currently re-writing (for the third time) her first memoir, and her essays have been featured or are forthcoming in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The Sun Magazine’s Readers Write, Modern Loss, Mamalode, The Manifest-Station, and the anthology So Glad They Told Me: Women On Getting Real About Motherhood (2016). A mom of three—two living children and one sweet spirit—she lives with her family in Carrboro, where she writes away in her basement and practices just a bit of law on the side.
