Lorraine Sommerfeld began writing when she was about to turn 40, because it was cheaper than a red convertible. Her weekly column Drive, She Said, in the Globe & Mail, is a nod to those of us who tend to turn the key rather than pop the hood.
Motherlode, in the Hamilton Spectator is a weekly peek at her harrowing life with two sons, two cats, a crumbling house and lot of laughter. Winner of an Erma Bombeck Humour Award, Sommerfeld's work has also appeared in magazines and wherever else someone has stolen it off the Internet. She is a frequent TV and radio guest, and a keynote speaker in a variety of forums that seek her witty repartee.
