LIZ ALTERMAN is a freelance writer and the author of the blog On the Balls of Our A$$ets, which chronicles the period that came after she and her husband were laid off within six weeks of each other. (Spoiler alert: Don't try this at home.)

Her writing has been published in The New York TimesParents, Blunt Moms, Sammiches & Psych Meds, The Mighty, and more.

Liz lives in Chatham with her husband and three sons whom she'd like to thank for simultaneously serving as her muses and reluctant beta readers. She’s grateful to her mom, her first and favorite storyteller, for instilling a lifelong love of reading and writing. Liz is thrilled to be part of the 2019 cast of Listen to Your Mother. You can follow her on Twitter @lizalterman.
