Meet the Author

J. Carol Pereyra is the Editor in Chief of Going Bonkers Magazine, and publishes this Going Bonkers Series with the support and efforts of best-selling authors, doctors, pyschologists, therapists, and professionals who are experts in their field.

One particular aspect of human nature which Pereyra believes can bring health and well-being is our sense of humor. Pereyra says, "I really believe that the sound of laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle or sneeze; it relaxes the body and reduces stress. I knew I wanted a series of self-help books and magazines that presented readers with solutions to real life problems, while injecting humor. And we've accomplished that with Going Bonkers!"
