Rude, irreverent and downright filthy … like Johnny Rotten meets Pam Ayres. –Julia Lewis, actor, Their Finest, Supergirl, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

This wonderful book gave me many laugh-out-loud moments. So many observations that resonated the absurdities of modern life. It’s great to pick up and open a page when the world seems chaotic, and puts a smile on the face immediately. Brilliantly written! –Jane Hatton, founder and CEO, Evenbreak

Through it all, she manages to make us laugh at ourselves and the silliness of contemporary life. –Barbara Grengs, author of the Toby Martin series of children’s mystery novels and Delicate Dames (forthcoming)
