Real Life. Real People.
Our Book ... Of Banter

When Neiman Marcus launched our book, What I Learned About Life When My Husband Got Fired!, it was intended as the basis of a sitcom.  Which explains why we "wrote" it using a conversational format (emails, Instant Messages, and telephone conversations) … as we wanted entertainment executives in Hollywood to be able to "hear" the voices – and banter – of the characters (we never expected to find ourselves in the public's eye).

But life never seems to go as planned. There was no way to know that our book would take on a life of its own and become a bestseller – read by men and women of all ages (from middle school students to senior citizens). Or, that we were to begin our journey into the world of education and then criminal justice.

Although we had originally planned for our second book to be a sequel to the first (and even started writing it!), we are pleased that our second book, The Book Club Approach To Personal Finance & Life 101, is a result of teachers, organizations, families, and individuals who asked for a companion guide.
