Crystal R. R. Edwards writes the monthly magazine humor column WELL, THAT WAS FUN©, featured in Visalia, California's Direct Magazine; she also writes commissioned pieces for its sister publications Lifestyle Magazine and Bride, as well as other freelance works. She is a professional copywriter, copy editor, and humorist. In total, her audience reaches over 500,000 people throughout the western United States.
Edwards is a member of the Erma Bombeck Humor Writer's Group, an extension of the well-established Erma Bombeck Writer's Workshop. She credits Erma Bombeck with teaching her how to use humorous writing to make sense of the absurdities contained within the daily life of a working mother.
Edwards has won repeated awards for layout editing, poetry, copy writing, and prose in over 18 years of professional writing.
Edwards is a former opera singer, a former computer game writer, and -- now that she's a mom -- a former nice lady. She contributes to many online humor sites and has maintained her own humorous blog about geek parenting since 2003. Her works can be found sprinkled throughout early online role-playing games (The Forest's Edge, The Forest's Heart, and Meridia, among others), websites, blogs and wikis.
You can follow her on Facebook, Flickr and Blip.fm.
She currently lives in central Texas with her extremely geeky husband, her three children, two cats, a frog, and a pet snail. Her family recently added a tarantula to the headcount.
