Leslie Blanchard – Scary Mommy

Leslie Blanchard

On a beautiful afternoon at the end of January, Leslie’s life was irrevocably changed when her husband of 33 years and father of her 5 children was killed in a motorcycle accident. Prior to that, Leslie’s blog had been a mostly hilarious chronicle of marriage with a large family of teens and millennials. Now she shares her daily experiences as she comes to terms with her profound sadness and shock, coupled with an effort to ever capture even the comical side of the most unimaginable challenges life can throw one’s way. She has been featured in Your Teen Magazine, and on websites such as Blunt Moms, Scary Mommy, BonBon Break, Today's Parent, BlogHer, and Faithit. She has been interviewed on NPR and is also proud to be liberally splashed about The Huffington Post in the United States, France, Spain, Japan, Quebec and Germany, as she comes to realize this may be the only way she ever travels abroad.
