Hope Lies in Less is a darkly intimate collection of short stories that explore what it is to be human. The characters within these stories confront moments ... not huge moments, but small bits of time and individuality in which perspective is transformed. Themes include personal crisis, loneliness, existentialism, the nature of memory, time's passage, aging, depression, suicide, interpersonal relationships, parenting, marriage, loss, fear, and epiphany. Hope Lies in Less is about the meaning of life.

About the Author

Kris Wehrmeister is the long-time author of the blog Pretty All True, at which she offers a mixture of humor, memoir, and literary fiction. Hope Lies in Less, Kris' first published book, is a collection of fictional short stories. Dark and unflinching in tone, Hope Lies in Less explores nothing less than the meaning of the moments that make up lives.

Kris is a used-to-be attorney, mother of two daughters, and wife to one man. She lives in Lake Oswego, Oregon, where she spends her time arguing with her daughters Maj and Kallan, who are brilliant and obstreperous. When her daughters are at school, Kris argues with the dogs, of which there are three - Jack the Terrier, Persie the Labrador, and Hazel the Weimaraner. Additionally, although no one would describe Kris as a "people-person," she occasionally meets with friends for beer or coffee accompanied by petty disagreements, of which she is fond.

Kris knows all the lyrics to all the songs, and she sings along. Always.

In her spare time, Kris writes.
