Kayla Fay is a freelance writer and the mother of four boys, three of whom have been formally diagnosed with the inattentive type of ADHD. When she started “Who Put the Ketchup in the Medicine Cabinet?” in 2002, her sons were ages 8 through 14, when her life was a “progression of dirty laundry, lost homework, misunderstood Algebra, and a whole lot of love and fun”.
Helping the boys deal with the nightmares of homework, the challenges of school, and the realities of life has given Kayla a unique insight into how to maximize the potential of children diagnosed with ADHD-Inattentive. With humor, candor, and faith, Kayla blogs about her experience and experiences with ADHD-I. She’s also written and produced several educational products for children, such as Focus, Pocus, 100 Ways to Help Your Child Pay Attention.
Kayla and her husband live in North Carolina in an almost empty nest.
Before Brock Myers was a mom, she worked as an advertising copywriter, selling everything from bricks to legal counsel. Today, her most common inspiration for writing continues to be her children; she’s mom to one son and two daughters, the youngest of whom was formerly diagnosed with the inattentive type of ADHD when she was in sixth grade. A longtime reader and fan of “Who Put the Ketchup in the Medicine Cabinet?,” Brock has recently joined Kayla in sharing her own experiences with teens, ADHD-I and life in general.
Brock and her husband make their home in the middle east and visit North Carolina as often as their schedule allows.
Brock and Kayla met at summer camp when they were eleven, although only Brock remembers their early acquaintance. It was in college that a friendship grew between the two women that has withstood the test of time, space, and ADHD. To protect the privacy of their children, both Brock and Kayla are pen names.
