This is Mojo. Mojo is magic. When I learned that there was an opportunity to transition from a maternity leave contract to a freaking PERMANENT position on my team, I have done everything in my power to make myself the ideal candidate for the job. I have been wanting a plant for my bedroom, but could not justify buying one for no reason, when I am blessed to have a window sill of gorgeous greenery, so I told myself IF I was lucky enough to be the chosen candidate, I would bring a little plant magic into my house. And so, after the happiest conversation with my boss, and a little bit of crying and a lot of clapping and grinning, I am so grateful for the Mojo that my parents sent me to celebrate my amazing day!!!!! Oh… also… I am a writer again!!!!💛💚💛💚💛
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
