I’m Jane (actually Shannon, but who’s counting?); a 32 year old stay-at-home mom with intermittent ambitions of writerhood. I live in Utah with Dick and our three daughters, Sally (8), Susan (4) and Spot (2).

You can email me at seagullfountain (at) gmail (dot) com, or read a few of my favorite posts:

The Curious Case of the Never-Good-Enough Mother, One More Thing, Three Degrees of Separation (how blogging brings us together), and Fun with Dick and Jane (how I chose our pseudonyms).

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Not saying I’m the best example of what a Mormon looks like, but we usually try pretty hard, most of the time. And my kids are pretty dang cute:

Sally (8) laughs loudly at the dollar theater and recently started reading books that I haven’t had time to.

Susan is an imp (not the Catholic devil variety, the other, 4 year-old kind) who likes to say no. “Do you want some ice cream, Susan?” “NO! I want some ICE CREAM!”

Spot (2) is still my baby, even if she’s no longer nursing. She likes to wail on Grandma’s dog and then pretend that she and the dog are the best of friends.

  1. Hi, Jane. Your web site is very charming. I am a literary publicist based in San Diego and am working on the publicity for a handbook of sorts entitled, The Book of Mom by writer and experienced Mom, Taylor Wilshire.

    I was just wondering if you ever recommend books on your web site if you feel they’re appropriate.

    Thanks for your time!
