Marrit Ingman
I first became acquainted with Marrit Ingman through the AustinBloggers WebRing roughly two years ago. When I added myself to the ring, I browsed through the existing blogs to see what people around Austin were writing about. Hers was one of a handful of blogs which kept my interest and I found myself returning and commenting on some of the posts. Her writing is honest and, at times, screamingly funny. Since then, our families have gotten together a few times and spending time with them has just increased my admiration for her writing and viewpoint. I’ve got a daughter who’s roughly the same age as her son, known to The Internets as “Baldo”, so there’s a lot of common ground.

Marrit and her husband had a tough go for the first couple of years with Baldo. After having him, she found herself in the midst of a major postpartum depression bout and found that poor Baldo came with more than a few health complaints that would tax even the most patient and prepared of parents. Being an amazing writer, Marrit channeled these experiences into a new book, Inconsolable : How I Threw My Mental Health Out With the Diapers, which was recently published by Seal Press. She’s having a book release this Wednesday at 7pm at Bookpeople. Marrit is also a staff writer and reviews films for the Austin Chronicle, which had a feature on her new book in this past week’s issue.
