Years ago, drowning her sorrows in a giant bowl of chips and guacamole, Kristan shared yet another story of falling down on the job (no no – that’s not a figure of speech) with her college roommate, Jen, who couldn’t believe the absurd luck of this person sitting across from her.

“I hope you’re writing all this down. You should write a book about all this stuff,” Jen announced.

In this collection of true tales (at least 87% of which have been confirmed as true), you’ll meet Kristan’s quirky parents, get a glimpse of some potential personality disorder mayhem, and you’ll even get a peek right in the birthing room for the delivery of her first-born child.

In You Should Write A Book!, Kristan shares her missteps in life with the same honest and hilarious vulnerability she uses in her popular* blog, Bring Mommy A Martini.

*This line is the only lie in the book**. Her blog isn’t necessarily popular. It’s maybe regularly read by members of her neighborhood Facebook page. But even that is doubtful.

**This is a complete fabrication. The line about her blog’s popularity is only one in a handful of lies you’ll find in this book. Everything else is totally true.

About the Author

A lifelong writer - as a hobbyist, and usually just to work through whatever "issues" were brewing at any given time - Kristan Braziel didn't pursue writing as a profession until after garnering a few laughs by blogging the antics of her book club.

New on the scene as a novelist, Kristan lives in Austin, Texas, with her life partner, Mark, and their four children, two of whom are human. The other two are chocolate Lab mixes, rescued from life on the streets with their mother, who was slutty.

When she's not writing, you'll likely find her canoodling a Mexican martini.
