Hop into your minivan and get ready to cruise through the crazies of Suburbia! Humorist Stacey Gustafson makes an entertaining tour guide in Are You Kidding Me?, a brash, voyeuristic peek inside the topsy-turvy world of suburban motherhood, midlife madness, and all points in between. If you’ve ever called SWAT on a neighbor, faked a heart attack in church, or pulled your hair out while questioning the sanity of your family, Stacey’s tongue-in-cheek brand of humor will resonate with you. Enjoy the ride and don’t forget to fasten your seat belt. (As taken from the publishers website.)

I had the opportunity to meet Stacey earlier this year at the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop and let me tell you, she does humor well. Ask her sometime about the late night bar session where she nervously entertained us with a rendition of her first mammogram. I think it was her mammogram, or it could have been… jeez, there was alcohol involved and a lot of laughing mixed with a few serious points, maybe.  And should we talk about her stand-up comedic act?

So when she asked if I’d be willing to help with the book cover reveal for her humoristic look at suburbia midlife, and motherhood, I said, “well, let me think about it.” No, not really, I told her I’d be happy to help promote the upcoming book. Stacey is a delightful person and a very funny lady.

I’m not a humor writer, you all know I kill people, right? (only on paper) But Stacey and I share a love of humor. We enjoy Erma Bombeck’s work, listening to Lisa Scottoline, and reading Janet Evanovich.

Look for her book Are You Kidding Me?  this fall.
