What if we all lost our jobs for innocent mistakes we made after a long and stressful day at work?
books
Tucker and I are not great friends, by any means, but he has been one of the few people in my life who not only supports and understands my desire to be a published writer, but actually encourages me to make it happen.

My favorite chick lit author was "Saved by Cake" and has this sweet (harhar) cookbook to show for it.
art
In her new book, writer Kate Durbin uses transcribed reality-TV dialogue as fodder for a surprisingly sympathetic look at a medium that everyone loves to hate.
