More About the Author

I was born and raised in Baltimore, went to college in Connecticut, worked in advertising in New York since the day I graduated from college. I have always written - advertising copy (I am a creative director at a small NY agency) and books. I like to write about lifestyle, food, entertaining, and issues that are relevant to women. I am a contributing editor to Metropolitan Home Magazine. I have written profound books about body image issues of teenage girls and I have ghost-written cookbooks. My new book lets me use my life experience to help other women shortcut their own experiences. I think of myself at the moment as a Life Sherpa. Or as Oprah would probably say, "as a life sherpa in progress." I feel like I have done pretty much everything, at least once. I have had one marriage, one husband, one divorce, two daughters, many Bearded Collies, countless cats, zillions of great friends, endless life experiences, one perfect macaroni and cheese recipe.

My copy of this book was sitting on the table in a restaurant yesterday and the waitress picked it up and started laughing as she read the cover. What a conversation starter!

This is a quick, fun read. 21st Century etiquette rules (What side of the aisle does the transgendered bridesmaid stand on? Do you have to admit your boobs are fake? Can you give your modern baby a Plain Jane name?) leave lots of room for debate, and the authors embrace that debate with levity, humor and a bit of real advice.

I bought a few copies to give for bridal showers and birthdays. Makes a great gift.

If you remember the certainty of your mother's Emily Post advice with
fondness, you will love this hilarious guide to living with grace and fun
in our anything goes world.

The book is chock-full of situations and dilemmas that were not part of
our social lexicon even ten years ago--and the authors' offer a fresh take
on gliding through quickly changing modern times with a minimal number of faux pas.

I have often found myself wondering whether it's okay to ask a lesbian how she got pregnant and now I know. "What To Do When No One Has a Clue" is a hilarious and easily accessible read. The further I got into the book, the more I came up with ridiculous situations from my own life...hopefully Pierson and Harrison are hard at work on volume II. This is a perfect graduation or wedding/baby shower gift.

Seinfeldian is the best way I can describe this book. Any of the questions posed in this book could be made into a Seinfeld episode. Seinfeld never addressed any of these (that I can think of) simply because Pierson and Harrison have focused on fun questions that are almost unique to the world we live in today -- and not the 1990s.

I love that this book doesn't try to offer authoritative answers to hard questions but rather gives us some quasi-experts' views.

It's a fun, light read that made me think harder about funny topics that I had in a long time.
