Mary Fran Bontempo



Mary Fran Bontempo resides in Bucks County, PA with her husband, three children and their mixed-breed mutt, Casey. After over twenty-seven years of experiencing the “joys” of marriage and motherhood, she finds that writing about her daily adventures not only fulfills a creative need, but joins her with all women, giving them strength in numbers and much shared laughter.

A former teacher, youth director and business writer, Mary Fran has shared her humorous take on life with thousands of newspaper readers in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas through her weekly “Everyday Adventures” column since 2002, winning awards from the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop and Humor Press.   

Ultimately aspiring to the lofty goal of being her generation’s Erma Bombeck, Mary Fran enjoys uniting readers through the common bonds of shared experience and laughter. She recognizes that as spouses, parents, daughters, and friends, we are truly all in this together and we might as well have a laugh or two along the way!
