Mary Fran Bontempo relies on writing to help her navigate a thirty-one plus year "career" as a wife, mother, author, teacher, former youth director, newspaper columnist, business writer, taxi driver, waitress, nurse, chief cook and bottle washer. Through her weekly Everyday Adventures newspaper column, Mary Fran has offered her humorous take on life to thousands of readers throughout the Philadelphia area and beyond since 2002, winning awards from the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop and Humor Press. Her 2007 collection of essays, Everyday Adventures or As My Husband Says, "Lies, Lies and More Lies" continues to spread the laughter to readers. Now finding herself plopped unceremoniously in life's middle ground, Mary Fran looks forward to exploring this uncharted territory and sharing it with readers on her blog, NOT READY FOR GRANNY PANTIES (www.notreadyforgrannypanties.com), keeping life firmly in the lite lane. Writing for Technorati gives Mary Fran the opportunity to vent an occasional rant on topics which cause her to double up on her blood pressure medication. She looks forward to hearing from readers and exploring an exciting new opportunity.
