Mother Teresa's Advice for Jilted Lovers

Every time Tara Holland thinks she’s getting close to finally having her white wedding, the man who should be on his knee, giving her roses, winds up on his back, pushing up daisies.

When a toaster explodes and kills Tara’s live-in boyfriend, she is devastated. When a bookshelf lands on her next lover’s head while he sleeps, she is crushed. But when paramour number three falls to his death two days after buying her a toothbrush, Tara gets scared.

She can’t believe that she has anything to do with the deaths. But, it’s hard not to see a pattern. Hoping to re-direct her apparent out-of-control, killer psychic abilities, Tara and best friend Betsy launch a business to help women get out of dead-end relationships.

Whoever coined the phrase, “What could possibly go wrong?” never met this twenty-first century, Thelma and Louise.

MemWow! Special event memoirs that make you say, “Wow!”

Most memoirs are boring.

And all memoirs are really. Hard. To write.

If you want a fun and easy way to share the memories of a special event, you need a MemWow!, not a memoir.

You can make a MemWow! for a special birthday, an anniversary, a marriage, a promotion, a retirement, a celebration of life… or just to say, “Gosh, we sure love you!” to someone special.
