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.


She's home and everything is good again.

This story took a long time to finish because it was hard for me. It was hard for me to wrap up this story because it's pretty close to my heart.  Watching my kids growing up and getting ready to head out into the world is the ultimate in mixed feelings.  I'm so proud of the young women they have become, and so sad knowing that in about a year one of them may not be my daily companion in all things as she heads off to university.

As Elizabeth Stone said, “Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” 

I do know that when my daughter does go it's going to change her life, it will change mine, it will change Hope and Harry, it will change everything.  She is smart and strong and independent, and she will be ready to go out into the world, I'm just not sure I'm ready for her to go out into the world. Not just yet.
