Editorial Reviews


"GRAY IS THE NEW BLACK is a coming of age memoir for those of us who took a little longer than others to write it all down. Rice discusses being a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and wife with an unflinchingly honest and unquestionably relatable pen. Although Rice is merciless in her examination of her life, she is never whiney, self-pitying, or cruel. Rice details her pain with such a wry humor that her memoir was impossible to put down."  - Mom Egg ReviewAugust 19, 2019 

From the Author

I am a late-blooming author working hard to make up for lost time. I earned an MFA in creative writing from UC Riverside, Palm Desert when I turned sixty. 

GRAY IS THE NEW BLACK: a memoir of self-acceptance (Otis Books, June 2019) is evocative of both Nora Ephron's wry, hilarious I Feel Bad About My Neck and the cathartic Hunger by Roxane Gay. GRAY IS THE NEW BLACK, shares an intimate story of ageism, shame and affirmation, one that will resonate with women of a certain age, full of smile-inducing insights, heartbreak, and--finally--affirmation. My first book, THE RELUCTANT ARTIST, about my father, an immigrant from the Philippines, was published by Shanti Arts in 2015.
