Rebecca Little, a native Chicagoan, writes Pinwheel, a style, service and shopping blog for Chicago parents. She has a master's in journalism from Northwestern University and is a graduate of The Second City improvisation training program. She is a former contributing editor at Chicago magazine and has written for Crain's Chicago Business, Google, Zagat and the Chicago Tribune. She loves discovering new ways to keep her two very active boys entertained lest they resort to spackling heirloom furniture or flushing toy trains down the toilet - not that those are real examples.
