I had a great experience on The Today Show, along with Editor Molly Rosen and fellow Essayist Cari Shane Parven about our contributions to Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our ’40s – Check it out!

Here’s the link to read my essay, “Stumbling into Cyberspace,” online at The Today Show’s website. Click here to read Cari’s essay, “Finding Friendship at 40.”

Here’s the link to purchase Knowing Pains from our Mom-tastic Bookshelf — 100% of profits from the book go straight to breast cancer research and education — the entire team of writers, editors, illustrators, website developers, etc., volunteered in order to donate the maximum to the cause.

Here are some fun photos:

The professional hair and make-up was a blast, especially considering none of us wear too much on a regular basis – Amy and Molly get a “roller” lift.

And finally, the shoes! Molly’s fabulous volunteer illustrator, Jill McCleary, sketched a different shoe before each chapter of the book – we each decided to wear something funky & fun, to demonstrate the many, many shoes we women wear in our daily lives! Note – I’m typically in clogs or sneakers, but my son found these heels at DSW, and they were fun to step into, just not so fun for NYC walking!

There are lots of chapters about life, love, sex, work, and more — click here to read about the Mom stories throughout Knowing Pains.

For now, the book is available primarily through Amazon – with limited distribution in bookstores.

    Feels like you’ve got …not exactly springtime fever, but more like spring inspiration. The blog post made myself believe that a thing inside me desires tweaking, a new experience. Still it really is an awful, always tough to improve you for yourself. Almost nothing interesting at all. I’ll take a bathroom and hit the sack, will always make it all more suitable tomorrow. With thanks for the article, good evening! 🙂
