Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Women over 40–actually anyone who loves a good laugh (I have a lot of male readers).
Q: What is the book about?
A: It’s a humorous novel about the pitfalls and pratfalls of reinventing yourself in middle-age. After 26 years of marriage, Angie is dumped by her husband. With the help of very determined and undeniably quirky friends, she creates a new life for herself. In this third book of the series, Angie turns – ack! – 50, and struggles with her new role as grandma.
Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: This novel is not autobiographical, but I’ve definitely stumbled and bumbled my way through my own re-inventions. Because I’m a single woman of a certain age (frankly, after you hit that certain age, you have trouble remembering your age anyway), I understand the trials and tribulations of re-entering tha dating scene AARP-style.
Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: These novels are much more light-hearted than most about women in middle-age. They are somewhat thought-provoking but intended to be chuckle-provoking. And rather than focusing on the lives NYC CEO’s or LA publicists, I write about “every woman.”
Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: These are feel-good books: relatable, sometimes poignant, mostly fun. Guys who read these novels have said that they give great insights into women–without the male bashing. Women swear that they recognize the characters as themselves or their buddies.
