More About the Author
Judy Gruen has crafted a career of writing sophisticated, relatable, clean humor that has earned her an international following.
Her most recent book, Till We Eat Again: A Second Helping (May 2012), infuses the funny into the otherwise frustrating topic of trying to lose weight and get in shape, and is earning rave reviews from readers and reviewers. (It is a thoroughly revised, updated, and redesigned version of an earlier title, Till We Eat Again: Confessions of a Diet Dropout.) In 2011, Judy also co-authored her first business book, MBA Admission for Smarties: The No-Nonsense Guide to Acceptance at Top Business Schools, with Linda Abraham, founder and president of Accepted.com. Judy's previous humor books include The Women's Daily Irony Supplement, which earned multiple awards for humor, including ForeWord Magazine's Humor Book of the Year (2007) and Carpool Tunnel Syndrome: Motherhood as Shuttle Diplomacy.

Her work has been featured in more than 10 anthologies as well as in The Saturday Evening Post, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, Family Circle, Ladies' Home Journal, the Los Angeles Times, AmericanThinker,com, Beliefnet.com,and many other media outlets.
