36-year old actuary Gerald Blumenstein despised every aspect of his life. His butterball-esque appearance was unappealing, his dull job unnerving, his cramped apartment uncomfortable, and his love life nonexistent. And yet, not a soul in the world was more petrified of death than Gerald. In fact, Gerald Blumenstein would do anything to avoid dying, even if it meant remaining trapped forever in an existence that, quite frankly, sucked.Then, one fateful night, while attending a highly unorthodox therapy session mandated by his boss, Gerald Blumenstein died. Now his life will never be the same . . .Life Sucks, Death Bites is a dark comedy about the inconveniences of daily life and nightly "undeath," with some romance and a bit of psychotherapy thrown in for good measure. If the three critically acclaimed HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, True Blood, and In Treatment, could procreate, this novel would undoubtedly be the lovechild that they would produce.

About the Author

Julie Kushner grew up in Marlboro, New Jersey and has been a passionate writer and voracious (bordering on obsessive) reader for as long as she can remember. Having always been enthralled with and fascinated by all things media, Julie’s brain is a veritable cornucopia of facts and tidbits about the entertainment industry. These facts and tidbits have been painstakingly collected during countless hours spent watching E! News, reading Entertainment Weekly, and studying the Internet Movie Database with the same dogged intensity with which seminary school students study the King James Bible.

Julie received a B.A. in Journalism, with a concentration in Broadcast, from the Pennsylvania State University, summa cum laude, graduating first in her major, with minors in both Psychology and Law and Liberal Arts. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Julie went on to receive her Juris Doctor from the George Washington University Law School, where she received a merit scholarship and was selected and served as a Legal Research and Writing Fellow for two years. Julie currently resides in Hoboken, New Jersey with her adorable cat, Piglet.

Ms. Kushner has authored two novels: Life Sucks, Death Bites and Hollywood Warlock. She also writes the blog, TV Recappers Anonymous, which, since its inception in January 2010, has received upwards of 2 million hits, averages about 6,000 visits per day, and is read in over 30 different countries.
