Layney Wells is a lifelong writer, a Philly native, and mom to fantastic 4-year-old twin boys. Because much of the beginning of her journey as a parent was spent living in Brazil, she is passionate about raising bilingual, multicultural kids. This means she sometimes forgets which language she's speaking, and sometimes resorts to speaking Portuguese on the playground to maintain an air of mystery. In her non-existent spare time, Layney enjoys gardening, reading, yoga and tattoos. Her biggest passion is raising her children to understand and question the world around them in a deeper way, and make it a better place in any way possible. She currently lives in Abington with her husband, children and two dogs.
