Overview

The Obesity Study: (Previously published as Spellcheck Nation)
OMG who is running these medical investigations? Are they serious? This is too much to bear. It is too gross. It is damaging to the psyche, the ego, the stomach. BUT. It does pay one hundred dollars. Let's do it.

What People Pray For:
It's early morning mass. The candles are lit and the priest murmurs the liturgy. After the Offertory and before Communion, comes the spot where the congregation can call out favors they want from God. Does it work? Is a miracle possible? What do they pray for? It's not money.
Spellcheck Nation :

Does Spellcheck have a sinister side? Can you engage it's darkness to help you strategize and gain the advantage even though society is screaming that you don't have a chance! Yes. You can. Fiftysomething Holly needs an ally to gain power in a sea of twentysomethings at a high-profile media job. Spellcheck comes through.

What I Wore For Loss:
A woman reflects on the downfall of her marriage and thrashes around trying to find a way of getting up. Filled with humor and self-reflection, What I Wore For Loss, is a life affirming love song to the reclaimed middle-aged woman.

Meet the Author

Consuelo Saah Baehr was born in El Salvador to French/Palestinian parents. At age five she joined her father and five uncles in Washington, D.C. where they ran the prestigious boutique department store, Jean Matou, a favorite of Bess Truman and Jackie Kennedy. Convent boarding schools came next and George Washington University. After college she began writing advertising copy for the Macy Corp. Marriage and three children followed and the writing was silent until a stunning Op-Ed piece in The New York Times brought a flurry of offers from book publishers. The result was the personal memoir, Report From The Heart (Simon & Schuster). Four novels followed. Currently her backlist as well as new ebooks are available for the Nook and other ereaders.
