Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

This is the back side of a kind of famous house in Santa Barbara. It's a Greene and Greene. What I like about the neighborhood it's in is that there's this big honkin' estate-type thing right here, and then next door is some shingled monstrosity that's been divided up into apartments where some guy's always changing his brake pads in the driveway, and then across the street's there's a cozy little one-bedroom grandma cottage, and down the way there's the guy who won the lottery, covered the entire facade of his faux colonial in white marble, and erected a wooden Statue of Liberty in the front yard.
