About the Author
My newest novel is Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold, a screwball comedy released by Dingbat Publishing in December 2013. My published novels (with Astraea Press) are: Called to Arms Again (May 2013), Rescued By That New Guy in Town (Oct. 2012), and The Overnighter’s Secrets (May 2012). Also released through AP is a short novella, Echo Taps (June, 2013). Romantic comedy and romantic suspense are among eight completed novel manuscripts. I’m co-author of two non-fiction monographs (about librarianship) with a royalty publisher, plus a signed chapter in another book and a signed article in a specialty encyclopedia. I’ve also published articles, book reviews, and over 120 poems; my writing has won nearly 40 awards, including several in national contests. As a newspaper photo-journalist, I published about 150 bylined newspaper articles, and some 100 bylined photos. I worked nearly 30 years in the field of librarianship. I’m a decorated veteran of U.S. Air Force (including a remote tour of duty in the Arctic, at Thule AB in N.W. Greenland). I’m the married parent of two and grandparent of six.

Amanda is crazy busy at work, the next two weeks are sort of do or die for her at the office and at this exact same time is when her boyfriend Jason comes down with a man-cold. She tells him that he can't stay with her but he insists and moves himself in without permission. Amanda turns to her friend Christine for help.
Christine comes up with the Scare Cure to cure Jason man-colds forever. Christine establishes a blog (no good can come from that right?) so that other women can learn from their experiment on Jason. She figures that she is not only helping her friend Amanda but helping all of womankind by giving them the Scare Cure so that they will no longer have to drop EVERYTHING the second their man comes down with the sniffles.
Jason is completely oblivious to the fact that Amanda does not want him there, he just wants someone to baby him through his cold. The things that he endures!! The girls take away the cable, sugary foods, well pretty much all food since all they left him with was health food that he refused to eat.
At first I thought Jason deserves this, he was told to not stay there, then it was repeated more than once. Pretty soon, I started pulling for Jason though. By the end of the book I was a huge Jason fan, even though I thought he was kind of a jerk at the beginning of the book.
I think every woman has suffered through a man's trifling cold or flu and had to traipse from kitchen to sick room for days on end. It's a different story when a woman becomes sick, she just has to get on with it. I remember, about 40 year ago when my kids were little, I got really ill with the flu. My first husband (now ex) actually brought a bag of potatoes, a basin and a vegetable knife to my bedside so I could prepare them for dinner. And God help me, he was such a tyrant, control freak and bully - I
peeled them. It never happened again, believe me, mainly because I knew better than to go to bed sick again.
A darned good read and many belly laughs for this novel!
Just FYI this has no swearing and all sex is behind closed doors.
It had a good ending with everything working out for the couple.
I would recommend this book to anybody that loves a light hearted comedy.
