I’m Humor Writer of the Month!

Posted Nov 9 2011

I was chosen as Humor Writer of the Month by the Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop!  Hooray!  See the details at:  http://humorwriters.org/category/humor-writer-of-the-month/

I’m so honored!  I loved Erma Bombeck’s writing.  She managed to find humor in the ironies – and in some cases drudgery – of daily life.  I often think of one or another of her humor pieces when I find myself in similar situations with my children and family.  Last year I had the privilege of judging a high school UIL contest in which one of the contestants recited an Erma Bombeck piece.  I loved it, of course!  And I was glad to know her pieces are being enjoyed by yet another generation.  So much of her humor is timeless.

I enjoyed showing the good things about middle age with this new character. I'm so glad you enjoy Kerrin's reviews and site! I do, too.

Wonderful! Same here. I trust her opinion. She's very open-minded and fair.

Thank you for the sharing Kerrin! I really love reading her reviews and quite often add the books to my ever growing pile of books to read.

What a lovely piece. I have loved Kerrin’s blog/reviews and have only ‘known’ her online for a short while, but she has been one of the only blog reviewers I check religiously. Your book sounds so much fun, and I’m glad the protagonist is closer to my age and not so young as they usually are . I will somehow see if I can read it in Australia. Thanks for the fab interview!! I love the pics from the catch up with Kerrin’s daughter. The landscape is beautiful.
