Who are Hope & Harry?


Hope and Harry is a semi-autobiographical comic about my family. Hope is a lot like me, except probably better, kinder, and more patient. Harry is a lot like my husband, except not quite as funny or good looking. Hope and Harry have two daughters and a cat just like my husband and I do, and many of the things that happen to them are based loosely on things that actually happen to our kids, their friends, our family friends or more often than I would like to admit, just made up by our family over dinner.

Hope and Harry is a comic that really celebrates the lives of families and the funny and strange things that happen to them. It’s all about busy schedules, unpredictable pets, unexpected catastrophes and the world of children’s imagination. I hope you will stop by for a coffee and a cookie and be ready to listen to Claire and Piper tell you all about their latest adventure.

Who are Hope and Harry?

Hope is a busy mom who has gone back to school to get her degree. She juggles the demands of school and being a mom with the help of her husband Harry and coffee – a lot of coffee. 

Harry is a husband and father. He is the breadwinner and takes that job seriously. But he’s also a dad, complete with dad jokes, serious BBQ skills, and a willingness to go to work covered in glitter because Claire gives him fairy kisses.

Piper is the oldest sister and has a serious nature. She nearly always has a book in her hands and is trying to figure out how to solve the problems of the world – when she isn’t a foil for her sister’s world domination plans.

Claire is the younger sister and lives almost entirely in her own imagination. She has a super-hero alter ego and is currently in negotiations with the monster under her bed.
