<p class="MsoNormal">My name is Marcie Carson, some may know me as Marcie Baim, or even Marcie Carson Baim, sometimes with a hyphen, sometimes not. Take it from me, when you get married make a decision about taking his name or not and stick to it. On a whim, I partnered with a girlfriend to write a <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.womobook.com/" target="_blank">tragically comic book</a> about the crazy life of a working mom (&ldquo;WoMo&rdquo; as we dubbed ourselves&hellip; we got tired of typing).&nbsp;</p> <p>I am the founding Principal and Creative Director of the award-winning graphic design firm <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.iedesign.com/" target="_blank">IE Design + Communications</a>. My coauthor, Aimee Grove, and I have known each other for over three decades, which means our friendship has survived some pretty serious life hurdles beyond being working moms: headgear, leg warmers, idiotic high school indulgences (many of them involving fashion or pillaged booze), college frat parties, the urban singleton years and now it's deadlines and diaper dookie.&nbsp;We are both married to great guys (that we occasionally poke fun at in our <a rel="nofollow" href="http://womoments.com/" target="_blank">WoMoments blog</a>) and we have three little dudes between us, ages 2 (hers), 3 and 7 (mine). Did I mention that we both work waaaay too much?&nbsp;</p> <p>I started my career in fashion, including a 9-month bout as Madonna&rsquo;s costumer (now there&rsquo;s a story!). I quickly left fabrics and hangers behind for the lure of logos and computers. I have been a longtime contributor to the graphic design industry &mdash; participating on judging panels and guest lectures, appearing in magazines, as well as getting nervous speaking at various events across the country. Now, I&rsquo;m working on applying my never-ending curiosity and creativity to the literary world.</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> <p>&nbsp;</p>
