Read My Books

I’m thrilled to be writing my first solo book, Metamomphosis.

Metamomphosis is a What to Expect When You’re Expecting for when what you’re expecting is to lose your identity and your sanity when you quit your job to become a stay at home mom. It’s the book I wish I had fourteen years ago, when I left my lucrative advertising career to become a stay at home mom. Leaving the office my last day felt a lot like driving a new car off the lot: my value dropped by a third just by crossing that threshold, and only got worse after years of being covered in Goldfish crackers. Metamomphasis is the guide moms need to redefine their time at home as a bridge to the next evolution of their career instead of a cliff they’re pushing their careers over.

This year has shown us that the future is decidedly female. While raising daughters has perhaps never been simple, it is growing more complex by the day. In a parenting age that often tells young girls that they are somehow “less than,” one award-winning publisher decided to assemble a collection of voices to celebrate the girls in our lives. These are those stories.

I Just Want To Be Perfect - The Dusty Parachute
I Just Want to Be Perfect is the fourth book in the bestselling I Just Want to Pee Alone series. It brings together 37 hilarious and relatable essays that showcase the foibles of ordinary women trying to be perfect.
The cult of perfection is a thing. As women, we are constantly inundated with “helpful” and/or “ah-may-zing” tips to improve our looks, please our men, raise the next Einstein (in a wheat-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free environment), and feng shui the crap out of our homes. Whether it’s the hot new diet that involves only eating what you can forage from the floor of your minivan, bleaching everything from your hair to your teeth to your butt hole, or clearing your clutter by mindfully thanking your ratty underwear for its long, dedicated service before you toss them, we’ve all tried something to be more perfect. We all try strive for perfection and balance in our lives, and most of us fail–spectacularly. These are those stories.

Through their tales, we’re reminded to savour the little things (like capturing extra morning snuggles), to let go of the stresses (they won’t be in that unfortunate phase forever), and to be grateful for the laughs that the unexpected brings (because laughing is better than crying and it may be the only workout our abs get!).
