Love & Other Natural Disasters by Joni Rodgers

Welcome to Mrs. Rodgers' neighborhood...

In the wake of a disastrous Texas hurricane, the power's off, trees are down, the elderly dog is on his last legs, and the kitchen is verging on crime scene. For Joni Rodgers (who managed to make cancer cause for more laughter than tears in her bestselling memoir Bald in the Land of Big Hair), this is all grist for the writing mill--and a fitting moment to reflect on her delightfully stormy relationship with her husband of thirty years.

Love & Other Natural Disasters, an entertaining one-hour read, is the first book in a series collecting the best of "Earth to Joni", the syndicated newspaper column in which Rodgers chronicled family life, politics and culture. Framing the dozen or so columns in each collection are book excerpts and never-published-before moments that welcome readers into the Rodgers household, where life is for living, love conquers all, and pancakes are what's for dinner.

"Rodgers lives, loves and writes without a safety net...a mix of Molly Ivins' blowsy wit and Anna Quindlen's suburban logic." ~ Entertainment Weekly

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Joni Rodgers was born into a family of gospel/bluegrass performers and grew up on stage, opening for huge-haired country music legends of the 60s and 70s. She continued performing until 1994, when she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. She used the chemo downtime to complete her first two novels and went on to author, coauthor and ghostwrite more than a dozen bestselling books, both fiction and nonfiction.

Married to jet plane mechanic/wine maker Gary Rodgers since 1983, Joni is the proud mother of two fine young adults. She lives in Houston, Texas and is represented by William Morris Endeavor, New York.
