Editorial Reviews

Review

" What a fun read for any stressed-out modern mum, of any age. This is one of the most enjoyable books I've read this year, and I couldn't put it down, the diary format making me keep turning the pages, for just one more day... one more week, I'll stop when I get to the end of the month... In the end, I finished it within 24 hours, and am now looking forward to the next installment." Debbie Young

" Absolutely loved this book l couldn't put it down & ended up reading it in a day
I look forward to reading more books by Nicola " Sharon Weekes

" This is a great book, full of heart and humour. Masterfully plotted, and brilliantly observed. Filled with many characters and situations I recognised all too well, and many others that I didn't! I enjoyed this book throughout - and don't let the title fool you, it's a book for everyone! And luckily there's three more to come!" Dom Rose Price

" Hilarious! Had me laughing out loud from page one..All stressed out mums can relate to the proverbial juggle of work, kids, husband pets etc. Nicola Kelsall has managed to make this light and funny whilst retaining enough drama to make it an absolute page turner. Can't wait for the sequel!" Liha Okunniwa

About the Author

Nicola Kelsall is an artist and writer, living in a little village in the Cotswolds with her own chaotic and noisy family, plus Chester the dog. She has loved being an artist and writer from childhood. She trained at Edinburgh College of Art, later becoming an artist and illustrator. Over the years, she supported her life as an artist by working in a wide variety of other professions. Her eclectic assortment of jobs have included; Chambermaid, Barmaid, Driver, Shop Girl, Secretary, House and Pet Sitter, Child Minder, Dresser for the Royal Scottish Ballet, Printer, PA, Designer, Illustrator, Singer in a Medieval Banquet, Event Organiser, Teacher, PTA Queen, and most importantly - wife and mother extraordinaire. "I used to worry that some of the dead-end jobs I did, represented huge amounts of wasted time and often felt trapped and frustrated. Now of course, I am grateful for all the interesting experiences and funny characters I've met along the way. Having a family has given me another very different perspective on life, and luckily inspired this series Diary of a Stressed Out Mother. I've enjoyed every minute of writing these books and I hope my readers love them too!" --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I have loved being an artist and writer from childhood, although the demands of real life have often got in the way. But despite having to do many different jobs to survive, I have continued to paint and to write all my life. I’ve done all sorts; from being a Chambermaid, Barmaid, Driver, Shop Girl, Secretary, Dresser for the Royal Scottish Ballet, Printer, PA, Designer, Illustrator, Singer in a Medieval Banquet, Events Organiser, Teacher, PTA Queen, and most importantly – Mother to three kids and a long-suffering husband. When times have been difficult, we've always retained our sense of humour as a family and tried to see the funny side of things.

I used to worry that some of the dead-end jobs I did represented huge amounts of wasted time and often felt trapped and frustrated. Now of course, I am grateful for this vast array of experience and all the interesting characters I've met along the way. Family life has given me another very different set of experiences, and luckily inspired this, the first book in the series 'Diary of a Stresed Out Mother'. I've enjoyed every minute of writing this book and I hope my readers love it too! Watch out for the sequel!
