Grady is a writer from the Seacoast region of New Hampshire and a graduate of Bennington College with a double concentration in Theatre and Education. She loves to both perform and stage manage for theatrical productions when she isn’t writing. When she married her wonderful husband three years ago in the cutest DIY barn wedding New England has ever seen, she was extra lucky because she also gained an amazing stepdaughter out of the deal! Grady loves to write about all things weddings, love, and marriage, as well as slightly more nerdy topics like money management and budgeting. She also has a passion for supporting and encouraging women who are getting married to a partner with children and who will be becoming new stepmoms when they say “I do.” In fact, she hosts a podcast on stepmotherhood called The Stepmom Club, as well as writes a blog on the subject, and has interviewed dozens of women on their stepmotherhood experience.
