"Told in the style of such great women writers as Kathy Lette and Maggie Alderson, Moya Kate will have you laughing till you cry and wishing you could be Til even if it was only for a week. This story is real, it's funny, it's honest and most of all it is hilarious she has given women everywhere a voice that says yes; you can be a mother, but you can also be a million other things as well and you can do it all while wearing a fabulous pair of stilettos."

Andrea, mother of two.
Til Fisher has the perfect life: a wardrobe full of designer clothes, a fantastic job, and a social life to die for. She dreams of one day going to Paris - and of taking the fashion label she works for with her. But on New Year's Eve, Til makes the ultimate fashion faux-pas: teaming the sexiest shoes on the planet and a few too many champagnes with a virile, six-pack, unshaven suit.
When the dust from the glitter ball settles, Til discovers she's pregnant and the realities of becoming a mother descend: soon she's suffering unrelenting morning sickness and throwing embarrassing, hormonal tantrums at her local baby store.
Nine months pass (as Til swells to yak-like proportions) and the unexpected happens: Til finds she loves spending time with her hilarious, screaming bag of wind and dreads the end of her maternity leave, looming as nastily as the scar across her once-perfect abdomen.
Instead of returning to her money-mad job, Til chooses a different path: a decision that takes her further than she ever dreamed; a decision that may not only changes her life but the lives of women all around the world.

About the Author
Her writing has been described as similar in style to Maggie Alderson, Kathy Lette and Helen Fielding.
"I want to write for contemporary women. Women who know we can change the world and women who juggle their careers, their families and their commitment to make the world a better place. It was really important to me to raise international maternal health info in Mama Couture, and in the next book, we'll see Til heading off to developing countries - trading her high heels for dare I say it - hiking boots.
