Andrea is a city-mom about to turn suburban-mom, to a 7-year-old girl who will seriously run the world someday. She, her husband, and daughter now (almost) live in Pleasantville, Westchester County, after having spent many years in Astoria, Queens. They also have their first child, Amelia, who is a 12-year-old kitty. When Andrea isn’t running around after her busy family, she likes to craft, having been an avid knitter and crocheter for almost 30 years, and used to teach knitting in the city.
