HI, What a great group idea. I've written about my misbehavin' ways in my novel, Sweet Fire, my short story collection and my recent memoir, Wait Until Tomorrow. I look forward to reading about your exploits. Here's a blog I wrote for Open Salon that got cross-posted on 

Good Morning, Class. I'm an Ex-Con

Anybody familiar with Triberr?  I have room in my tribe for other bloggers who write about causes/issues/activism etc.  If you're interested, follow me on Twitter (this is a requirement to issue invites) and send me a message!  @bcmgsupermommy

Hello Dawn! How's it going over here on the misbehaving list? Miss you ladies!

Hi everybody,

My name is Jeannette Kantzalis and I just signed my first publishing deal for my novel/album, "Josephine the Outlaw King".  Definitely a woman who "misbehaves".

The novel started from a blog I started on my music myspace page.  It became such a conversation starter and women who've struggled with the conventions of their identity seemed to respond to my posts the most.

It was so great to finally find some like minded sisters out there.  It's very nice to meet you all and I look forward to hearing your experiences.

For all the girls that misbehaved and still grew up to become great women, this is for you. xo

I thought you all might get a kick out of my latest blog post's title...

Hello everyone. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and have blogged about it on my current blog which is moving to my new host (not all the old posts are up there yet, but the most recent stuff is). 

I am currently misbehaving within IBM, where I upset just about everybody by insisting on high quality standards in our internal agency work for the company. It may be getting older, or finally realizing that my writing voice is authentic and will be heard, despite every previous attempt to shut me up, including the "get a real job" line, but I am moving into what seems to be a highly creative phase. It's taken me a long time to reconcile my talent with my fear. But I have come to a tipping point, where I am more afraid of not speaking my truth than upsetting any personal apple carts.

Hey there! My name is Mary Karen (yes, that's my first name :-))  I was named after both grandmothers, my mother and a nun. Phew! Anyway, I'm interested to read all of your stories.

I love being a woman, and I want to show my daughter how amazing being a woman can be. We are strong, intelligent, creative and much more. 

I don't want people, society, telling me how I should be, or what I should wear, or for Pete's sake that I need to cut my long hair because I'm over 30! I want to discover my best self and help her do the same.

You are invited to consider new possibilities in the pages of MisBehave. I invite you to listen to the stories of the women who have been my guides, my examples, my teachers, and my inspiration. I invite you to allow their stories to enter your mind, to aid you in your own process of self-discovery and renewal.


Stories are the most indispensable things we have. Even if we had no computers, no machines, no cities … even if we had nothing left except our stories and the stories of the generations that have gone before us, I think that we would still have everything we need to become all that we can be. Stories not only tell us about other people—they tell us about ourselves as well. Stories change the way we think, the way we see. They show us things we never expected to notice. At least, that’s the way it has been with me, as I began to encounter the stories of these incredible women who risked everything in order to become all they were capable of.


So if, like me, you have sometimes wondered if you really mattered or if there was something wrong with you because you couldn’t find satisfaction or fulfillment in doing things the way everyone told you they’d always been done … you may find the beginnings of some answers in MisBehave. As you learn of the difficulties, challenges, injustices, and triumphs experienced by the “misbehaving” women you will read about in this book, you may discover renewed determination to write your own story—the story with the best ending of all: the satisfaction of having done all that you were meant to do.


That’s the dream I have for myself. I hope it’s a dream you can share.
