I'm Tandra (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Mommy to Alora (age 11) & Vivia (age 5). 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!
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.
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.
I enjoy working with businesses/brands individually & with my family on campaigns, sponsored posts, sponsored travel, & more. If your product or service is something I know will appeal to my readers, I’m happy to help bring greater awareness to it. Reach me at email@example.com if you have an interest in collaborating.
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!"
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! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
