About The Author:
Sharon L. Brecher is a mom-blogger, writer, illustrator, wife, and Miserable Mom. Her first book, Miserable Mom: The Do’s and Don’ts of Sending Your Kid to College, calls out the absurdities of this stage of motherhood with a wry sense of humor and a self-deprecating wink to her own place in the emotional merry-go-round.
You can follow Sharon’s comical perspective on navigating the often-humorous balance of raising young adults while maneuvering mid-life on her popular Instagram page @MiserableMoms and her website https://miserablemoms.com/
“Sharon has taken her first-hand experience with the daily angst and indignities of motherhood and – instead of eating cupcakes alone in her car – has channeled it into this well-observed and funny book! Her illustrations that juxtapose her comic characters against a real-life background are an apt metaphor for her clever take on what it means to love and let go with a sense of humor… and to get up the next day and do it all over again.” – Eileen Heisler, Executive Producer/Co-Creator, The Middle
“She’s not really miserable. She’s creating her way through the ups and downs of life’s most perplexing assignment – raising humans. Sharon’s book is a sassy, sparkling help list for a mom’s most dreaded job, sending her kid to college. You will laugh, you will wince, you will buy two books so you can cut one up to send pages to your friends.” – Becky Blades, Author of Do Your Laundry or You’ll Die Alone: Advice Your Mom Would Give if She Thought You Were Listening
