More About the Author

Maia Sepp is an author of quirky contemporary and Apocalyptic fiction. She left the tech sector to write books about sock thievery, migraines, the future, and...the tech sector. Her latest, "Wake," is the prequel to the "End Times Series" and is a story about climate change, unruly appliances, and finding somewhere to belong. It has just been released on Amazon.

"The Sock Wars," an Amazon top-100 digital bestseller, is her first book. Maia's second novel is "The Migraine Mafia," a story about a nerdy thirtysomething's quest to come to terms with a chronic illness. Her third book, "An Etiquette Guide to the End Times," is a humorous near-future Apocalyptic novella.

Considering that I get chronic migraines, requesting the ARC for this was a no-brainer. I had so many "that's totally how I feel!" moments that I also felt like I wasn't alone. For anyone experiencing chronic disease, that is sometimes the biggest feeling- that of feeling like you're on your own. I'm completely jealous of anyone having a group like the Migraine Mafia to support them, and I'm thinking I need to find/start one for myself. This book was also quite inspirational to me. I finally decided to give up feeling guilty that I can't do everything. Or sometimes, anything. Viive's finally making concessions like hiring a housekeeper (not in my budget, but a nice thought) made me realize that I could divvy up the chores a little differently to things that I feel better/more comfortable with doing.
Overall, this book made me cry and laugh because, Hell, I've been there. Seeing it in writing made it all the more real, but all the more easy to deal with for a time, as well.

The Migraine Mafia is a funny, well-written book about Viive, a hard-working go-getter who suffers from migraines. I could not only relate to Viive, as I have suffered migraines myself, but I could see myself being friends with her.

Viive’s illness is woven effortlessly into the story as she takes on a very strong-willed and straightforward mother and a sister-in-law deserving of the “Most Annoying” trophy. The relationship the main character has with her caring and dedicated husband is so charming, but not without some flaws, which makes it relatable.

Sepp’s depiction of office life is spot on, with crazy and memorable co-workers, lack of the elusive work-life balance and forced vacation, which is anything but.

Throw in a support group and some drugs and you’ve got a great book! No Advil required!

Maia Sepp has written another hilarious book about living life in the real world of horrible bosses, annoying relatives and migraines. Yes, as the title implies, this book involves migraines. A lot of migraines. The author either did her research really well, or she's a sufferer herself, because I found the descriptions of the hell of living with chronic migraines fantastic (if being in hell can be called fantastic). This one is definitely worth a read - you won't be disappointed.

I received a copy for review purposes. Maia tells the story of a woman dealing with a chronic illness and the perception of the world towards that illness. From an understanding husband to a "blame the victim" sister-in-law, Viive experiences a varying array of emotions, interactions and obstacles to overcome. Viive is likable and we want her to persevere in the face of adversity. The story ending left me wanting, but overall it was an enjoyable read. I'm awarding four stars for "I liked it!"

This book is for anyone that has migraines, loves someone with migraines, or deals with someone who has migraines. Having them for almost 30 years, not to the level of Viive, but enough to go to the ER to have shots in my ass on many occasions, is enough to know that life is not going well. Trying several meds that don't work or make your entire world seem void, jelly like or just plain odd, is enough to want to cry, but that just causes enough pain. But the worst part is dealing with people who think you have not done everything possible to stop them, such as her sister-in-law. Or that you are only wanting the attention. I could think of several other ways I would rather have the attention, and I can think of several times people have given me advice. Drink more water, stop drinking this, stop eating this, but until they have taken care of my food logs, had my allegry test, MRI's, EKGs, EEGs, CT scans, and taken all the drugs given to me, they need to realize that I appreciate more than anything for them to leave me alone for the moment. And finally, Viive, tells everyone just that close to the end of the book to the people that really don't have an impact on her well being. She only takes the people who have her well being at heart and keeps them close. The ones that don't, she either tells them to get educated, or just tells them to go. I hope you find your trick of getting rid of your migraines, I have found a small help, but it is not a real fix as I will have to live with it forever. If I could find my own Migraine Mafia, I would be really happy. Thank you Maia for sharing this amazing book. God bless you for writing this. And thank you to my husband for staying by my side.

Although this book was fiction any migraine suffer is sure to relate with Viive, it was a light hearted and fun read in the daily life of living with migraine. I would recommend this this to anyone who gets migraines or especially to those who live with a migrainer and want better understanding of what we go through living with this disease. The author does a great job bringing humor into a subject most of us find little to smile about. Loved it!

I suffered from chronic migraines as a teen and both our daughters were getting them at least 4 times a month by age 9 so I have been there, believe me. Migraines suck and this book tackles that honestly. Once Viive hooks up with the Migraine Mafia, things take a decidedly different turn in her life, one that was good. I wish I'd had a Migraine Mafia when I needed one!

If you've ever had a migraine, you'll laugh and probably feel a lot of empathy for the character. Even if you've never had a migraine, this is a great book.
