Devon-Corneal-headshot-by-Jennifer-LiseoDevon is a mother, step-mother, writer and recovering lawyer who lives, outnumbered, in a loud and wonderful home in Montclair, New Jersey with her husband, two boys, and a dog named Max. She’s worked for law firms, judges and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services developing, coordinating and analyzing policies relating to children, youth and families. Before becoming a mother, Devon was sane and relatively well-dressed.  Now, she’s grateful if she remembers to shower and eat.  Devon’s writing covers issues ranging from individual rights, child and adolescent development, children and the law, parenting, and work/life balance. She received a J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law, an M.S. in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University, and a B.A. from The College of William and Mary.  When not writing, she can be found puttering around the garden, cheering on the sidelines, swinging at the playground, or if she’s really lucky, hiding in the hammock with a good book. She’s grateful you found your way here, and hopes you’ll stick around.
