My name is Kate Figes and I am a journalist and the author of several books about family life including Life After Birth, The Terrible Teens, The Big Fat Bitch Book and Couples. I have also written two novels – What About Me? The Diaries and Emails of a Menopausal Mother and her Teenage Daughter and a sequel What About Me, Too? You can find out more about me on my website www.katefiges.co.uk and contact me there.
I have set up this blog because life with teenage daughters throws up so much about ourselves as women. I hope that mothers and daughters will want to share their stories and their ideas here so that we can build a resource for all women, whatever their age.
