About

My name is Eden M. Kennedy. I grew up in suburban Denver with my parents, my two older brothers, and a big, red-haired dachshund named Claudius Nero Caesar. My dad taught me how to do a crossword puzzle; my mom taught me how to knit; my brothers taught me how to light firecrackers and drop the puck in a street hockey game.

Eventually, I grew to hate hockey; all the good fireworks are illegal; and though I still love to knit, I gave up doing a daily crossword when I let my New York Times subscription lapse.

And then I discovered blogging.

When I had a baby and lost my editing job back in 2001, blogging became a good way to record my history and teach myself a little HTML. For instance, here’s an early post where I describe what it was like to give birth in my own bathroom. Here’s this other thing where I took a picture of my head every day for three months so that the whole Internet could watch my hair grow.

Because of the time and energy I’ve wasted on the Internet I’ve been mentioned, quoted, featured, and/or interviewed by The San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Times, Frontline, the BBC, The Santa Barbara Independent, and The Santa Barbara News-Press (which I’m not linking because I’d need to buy a subscription to find the URL).

My dear friend Alice Bradley and I wrote a book that was published by St. Martin’s Press. I leaf through it once in awhile and wonder why we haven’t been given a Nobel Prize.


You can buy a copy from your favorite local bookseller or order from any of these online outlets:
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Books-a-Million | Borders | IndieBound | Overstock.com | Powell’s

We think it’s funny (and it got a nice review in The Washington Post) but if you don’t agree and want to get rid of your copy, please mail it to:

The Norwegian Nobel Committee

I also blog at yogabeans! but not with any regularity. (My relationship with yoga has become complicated. We’re working on it.)

Some of my posts are in this book, and in this book, and I also have an essay in this book, too.

If it’s too much work to go through my archives, you can always just read my interview with Leahpeah or get the bare minimum from my About Me page.

If you’d like to send me an e-mail, that would be great! That’s fussy at fussy dot org, remember to replace the (at) with an @ and the (dot) with a . I normally respond pretty quickly. If I don’t it may be because (a) you have overwhelmed me with your kindness/anger and I don’t know how to respond, or (b) you’ve asked me to help you market something that makes no sense to me whatsoever.
