Raven is a self-dubbed writer, editor, performer, diva and mom, who was born and bred in NYC, just like her husband, her mom and now, her daughter. As a writer, she's contributed articles to Time Out New York, The Village Voice, New York Magazine, the New York Post, TV Guide, Better Homes and Gardens, iVillage, AOL TV and Moviefone, Parents.com, and worked as an in-house editor for ParentsConnect.com and TimeOutKids.com. As a performer, she's appeared on many downtown stages (sometimes even for pay!), a couple of obscure films and TV shows, and The Maury Povich Show as a female drag queen. She's also the founder of Hot Mama Burlesque, the world's only all-moms burlesque show. She happily reads every single word on Mommy Poppins NYC. And yes, all of her mommy friends ask her what's going on in the city every single weekend. Reach her at email@example.com.
