I really loved writing this book, and not just because I got to write about Boston in the summer – which is great. Here's a little about the book: What happens when a Boston-based financial whiz decides to take her penchant for asset management to the next level by setting out to do for relationships what Morningstar did for mutual funds, creating a secret underground society where women share information on the riskiest investment of all – men? It's better than insider trading, it's INSIDER DATING.

The Divorced Girls’ Society: Welcome to the Club
I wrote this with my best friend, who just finished going through a divorce. We laughed more writing this book than I ever thought possible. Even now, as we read through it to see if it still makes sense, we’re still cracking up. If you have a friend who is getting divorced, or you’re in the thick of it yourself, this book will give you a no-holds-barred peek into the sometimes grueling, sometimes absurd, divorce process. And, hopefully, help you smile in the end.
