My Life as a Doormat by Rose Gardner

Do you ever feel like life, work or family is overwhelming? Romance doesn't always go as planned. Do your friends think you quirky? Superstitious? Are you a people pleaser? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions then My Life as a Doormat is the book for you.

My Life as a Doormat follows the adventures of Rose Gardner. It's 1980. Naïve and fresh out of college Rose moves to Manhattan against her parents' wishes to pursue an acting career. Anxiety-ridden and insecure, Rose fights to maintain her sanity, while establising herself as an actress and coping with bad relationships, unpredictable roommates, bad decisions, bad jobs, and bad friends.

Follow Rose Gardner (created by author Ivy Tobin) as she continues standing up and speaking out on her Facebook page - The Society for Recovering Doormats. And on her blog site

About the Author

Rose Gardner is the alter ego of writer and actress Ivy Tobin. As an actor in New York City, Ivy achieved near fame appearing in multiple films and television series including One Life to Live, Another World, Spin City, The Secret of My Success, Texas, A Stranger Among Us, and The Quiz Show. Ivy spent years as a struggling scriptwriter, playwright, songwriter and poet, often writing under the name of her alter ego, “Rose Gardner.”

My Life as a Doormat is Ivy’s newest Rose Gardner endeavor. In addition to working on her next novel, Ivy also writes a daily blog as Rose Gardner at www.facebook/TheSocietyForRecoveringDoormats where she offers advice and encouragement for those uncomfortable standing up and speaking out for themselves. The New York Post finally published her poetry. Ivy relocated from NYC and now lives on the West Coast of Florida, with her husband, daughter, and two cats.

If you're a bit on the quirky side (or know someone who is), this book is a "must" for your holiday gift list! "Rose" is close to my heart.

Thank you, Rose, for taking me back to that amazing time in my youth when all was there to be discovered and conquered. Although you had me laughing much of the time, my heart also ached for you (and perhaps at my youthful self) as you so bravely kept moving forward to pursue your dream and become your own person. I couldn't put down this book.

This is a funny and nostalgic journey through situations that most can relate with. The commonality of the human condition is a great unifier and Ivy has zeroed into here.This is an entertaining, easy read. I highly recommend it!
