Black mom blogger

 

Hi there...

I'm Tandra (thrillermomlove@gmail.com).

Mommy to Alora (age 11) & Vivia (age 6). Life partner to Johnny, my best friend. I groove to all types of music & check out more library books than I can read.

North Carolina is home. I'm lucky to live a few hours from the beach AND the mountains. Perfect location!

 

My Interests...    

Writing is my first love. Along with starting a blog, I once wrote a column in Word of Mouth, a local magazine. I am published in an anthology, Lose The Cape: Never Did I Ever (and Then I Had Kids) & Weird Parenting Wins. Find more of my writings within the TODAY Parenting Team Community.

I am also passionate about fitness & adventuring. I’m at my best when healthy & strong. I added powerlifting to my fitness routine over a year ago & haven’t looked back. As for adventuring, I want to see the world with my family but exploring locally is equally exhilarating! Whether hiking a mountain, getting acquainted with marine life at aquariums, or attending a library event, we’re having a good time.

Thriller Mom

I can be shy but my love for the camera runs deep. I have a love affair with landscape photography & family portraits. In earlier years, I was an extra on movies & t.v. shows like The Water Is Wide & One Tree Hill. I also had a small speaking part in a local independent film. In 2016, I was one of the cast members of the national series, Listen To Your Mother.

Video blogging, aka vlogging, found a true place in my heart. Inevitably, I created a Youtube channel in which I record the daily life & adventures of my family. I hope you'll check out our channel, Hang'n With The Heards, & subscribe.

The Story...

How the heck did I come up with the name Thriller Mom? I know that's what you're wondering!

Here's a quick backstory...

"Once upon a time, a little chocolate woman gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Life was sweet... until it wasn't. Motherhood showed no mercy towards the inexperienced mom & she lost her cool. As she ranted about her daughter's behavior, she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror looking JUST LIKE Michael Jackson (the zombie version) in his Thriller music video. She had a good laugh & boom... Thriller Mom was born!"

 

The Blog...

What started as a personal soapbox to vent parenting frustrations turned into a cherished platform of humor & honesty about daily life. Find more of my parenting honesty on my Facebook page.

Thriller Mom continues to evolve. I am focused on becoming a better writer, expanding my travels, & creating better content overall. Won’t you join me on my journey?

THANK YOU so much for being here. Let’s get to know each other better! (thrillermomlove@gmail.com)
