Olivia Hinebaugh

Olivia is a write-at-home-mom to an eight-year-old boy, a five-year-old girl, and a busy two-year-old boy. She loves covering children's publishing, because discovering books her kids will love is an amazing perk. She will also happily talk about new parenthood, birth, and mental health. Along with parenting and book articles, she writes kids' books. Her debut YA novel THE BIRDS, THE BEES, AND YOU AND ME published in January 2019. She's also written for Mothering and the Washington Post. Three of her personal essays about breastfeeding appear in the book TO THREE AND BEYOND. Olivia was also honored to perform a personal essay about life with panic disorder for the inaugural production of This Is My Brave. Like most modern moms, Olivia juggles a lot of things and wears a lot of hats. This means a) she writes whenever the kids are sleeping and b) her house is often messy. Some people can do it all. Olivia is not one of those people.
