I’m Kristan Braziel, an author, full-stack freelance copywriter, and blogger at BringMommyAMartini.com. I’ve been featured on sites like Huffington Post, NBC’s Today Show Parenting Team, BlogHer, She Is Fierce! and Mock Mom, among others.
I wrote a humorous memoir, You Should Write A Book! True Tales Of An Unstable Life (in just 30 days!), which earned five stars from Readers’ Favorites, and I’m currently writing an historical fiction novel based on the true story of my grandmother in WWII England.
My blog’s social following established me as a micro-influencer and a social media expert panelist for the 2018 MediaCon event hosted by the Alliance for Women in Media, Dallas/Ft. Worth.
Mom to two hilarious boys: one in college, and one in middle school, I write about:
• Empowering kids, teens, and young adults who struggle with anxiety and depression
• Successfully navigating through all the messy stuff life throws our way
• Choosing happiness as a practice, from the standpoint of someone with chronic depression & anxiety
• Family travel, including all the things we do in the name of "making memories"
• Life as a Texas family
Born and raised in Texas, I live in a tiny town north of Austin with my husband, our two sons, and three dogs (including Austin's very own Lilly the Therapy Dog!)
