The Coconut Girl is Whitney Morrill, an architect, writer, and mother of two. I have a special interest in mothers with new babies, whom I feel are an under-supported demographic in our culture. This blog aims to offer them, and all readers, equal doses of understanding, humor and utility as bent through the prism of my wack creative offerings.
My writing has appeared in Slate, Inform, The Courier Journal, and Streetlight. I’ve written and illustrated a fictional book about architecture, and am currently working on a novel entitled But if She Knew, She Forgot. An excerpt from the novel, “Teardrop Opening,” won a short fiction award from the Charlottesville Writing Center and was broadcast on WMRA, the regional affiliate of National Public Radio. TheCoconutGirl.com was the Blog of the Week on WCAV-CBS 19, and was featured in C-ville Weekly.
