Kymberly Foster Seabolt
Through amateur parenting, haphazard home improvement and the entertaining essays featured in her weekly column, Kymberly Foster Seabolt has proven she has the ability to connect with readers by tapping her years of experience in the fine art of being “a real person.” She is also outspoken, articulate, and “much taller than she looks on paper.”
Since debuting in July 2001, her weekly column has delighted a diverse and growing readership. By weaving her special brand of humor with poignant, entertaining, and honest portrayals of parenting, marriage, and modern life, her work has found a home on refrigerator doors, bulletin boards, and desktops across the United States and Canada.
Her essays and features have appeared in numerous national and regional publications, including House Beautiful, Old House Chronicle, Salon, This Old House, and Baby Steps, among others.
Her credentials include serving as a staff writer for Old House Chronicle and hipMama magazines and weekly columnist for The Farm and Dairy and The Imperfect Parent.
She is also the author of "A Dog Scorned" (in "Bad Dog Chronicles," Brown & Brown, Eds., 2000).
You'll rethink banishing Rex to the basement after you've spent a few minutes with Bad Dog! True Tales of Trouble Only a Best Friend Can Get Away With. This hilarious compendium of stories, shared by the offenders themselves, is guaranteed to make readers laugh out loud. Every dog lover will relate to the writers' well-earned pride in their accomplishments, and the damages incurred.
Kymberly Foster Seabolt's "Risk: A Dog Scorned" appears in "Bad Dog!"
Regular Foster-Seabolt readers will recognize (and perhaps applaud) the dubious contribution of her "emergency back-up dog" (aka the sublimely stupid "Risk.")
Bad Dog! has become a smash with Web Interactive, Websight Magazine, Yahoo Internet Life Magazine, and many others.
