Mom & Writer

Dani Shear is a writer and the mother of two kids, who are five years apart – an age gap she highly recommends. When her daughter was seven months old, Dani and her husband decided to change her name – a process that leads her to believe that if you can possibly agree on a name before putting it on the birth certificate, it would be a really smart idea!
