I make single motherhood look like The Hunger Games meets Gilmore Girls.


Christine Coppa is a 30-something single mom. She shot to internet fame in 2007 when glamour.com hired her to pen the daily blog, Storked! Through personal storytelling, Coppa garnered an audience eager to read about her unplanned pregnancy and leap into single motherhood. Her memoir, Rattled! came out in 2009 and was noted as a big-hearted book in The New York Times. A freelance writer, find more of her work at The Asbury Park Press, glamour.com, Good Housekeeping, Woman’s Day and Yahoo Parenting. Coppa is a cancer survivor, living in New Jersey with her son Jack and golden retriever Lucy.
