About

Laurie Ulster

I'm a freelance writer who used to be a TV producer, and then switched to digital, running sites like A&E and Fuse. My work most frequently appears at ScreenRant.com, TrekMovie.com, Biography.com and at Scary Mommy, where I've written about parenting, lifestyle, feminism, pop culture, and just about anything else. I've contributed to The Chefs Connection (yum!), Momtastic, Women at Warp, YourTango, My Fave Places, Fuse, Great Moments in Parenting, and Purple Clover. I am also the editor of my local newspaper.
