More About the Author
I'm half of a brother and sister writing team. We were raised in suburbia, one of us wears glasses, one doesn't, and 50% of us is female. The other 50% is male -- and is taller than the other half.
We're the creators of the national bestselling Stupidest series - which includes the #1 bestselling page-a-day calendar The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said (now in its 21st year -- with over 4.5 million copies sold) and books like Unusually Stupid Americans. We've also written numerous other humor books including B is for Botox (an alphabet book for middle aged people), Jane's Guide to Dicks, and Wretched Writing, as well as compiling inspirational bestselling quote books like Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese and It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done (with over 568k copies sold).

I am a noir film and novel fiend, a bad joke aficionado, a word nut, a quote fan, and (I must admit) a sometimes annoying grammar pedant. And I'm proud to say I was on Jeopardy (but, sadly, came in third - and only won a designer watch ...).
