The Migraine Mafia is Now Here!

Hi everyone!

The Migraine Mafia is my latest book - the story of a nerdy thirtysomething's quest to come to terms with a chronic illness - and it's now in stores! It's on sale everywhere for .99 until Monday the 16th.

On paper, Viive McBroom lives the perfect life--a key player in a fast-paced, technical field, one promotion away from real success--but that's only if you ignore one little problem.

Sandwiched between one migraine and the next, Viive's life is like those choose-your-own-adventure books you read as a kid, only less fun and with a lot more drugs. And lately, as her bosses politely march her toward a vacation that might never end, even the good days feel like a struggle for survival.

Faced with frustration from her loved ones and the dark machinations of a new colleague, Viive feels herself getting pulled under by guilt, apologies, and workplace shenanigans. But then she meets the Migraine Mafia, a quirky, vibrant support group, and her fragile camouflage begins to crumble. She discovers that a room full of strangers just might be able to change the way she views her illness--and realizes that if she doesn't learn to ask for help, her health isn't the only thing she stands to lose.

Sometimes painful, frequently hilarious, always entertaining, The Migraine Mafia is the story of one woman's life-altering decision to thrive in the face of chronic illness.

This is a fabulous read. I loved the 'voice' the wit and humour, the tension rising. I suffered with the protagonist as she suffered, willed her to do well, get better, to hold on and manage. I got really caught up in the workplace drama which had characters so well-drawn that I found myself hating them, or really liking them or arguing with them.
I recommend it for anyone with or without a chronic illness.
