“Stop and Smell the Asphalt: Laughter & Love along the Highway of Parenthood,” is a literary romp in the side-splitting tradition of Erma Bombeck, Dave Barry and Anne Lamott.
Reviewers describe this book as
“Laugh-out-loud funny” and “…hilarious, but not over the top.”
Veteran writer for television and print, Lindy Batdorf has penned a feel-good book on parenting that captivates the heart and smacks the funny bone. Swept along on this hilarious, exhilarating ride, readers sense the passion and experience every emotional gut-punch that inspired each delightful true story.
What readers are saying…
“…humor so refreshing that you’ll be going back till the pages are worn and falling out!”
“…not only laugh-out-loud reading, but excellent therapy….”
“This book is one journey you’ll want to take over and over again…”
Lindy lives in Milwaukie, Oregon, with her husband Alan, their two teenage sons, three little pug-dogs, one cat and two-dozen diseased rose bushes. She’s a humorous, engaging speaker and conference leader and has acted as chief editor for several popular web resources. Her experience includes work as an adjunct professor of journalism, writer/producer for major television and radio outlets in the Northwest and writer for publications including The Oregonian and Woman’s World Magazine.
When not writing, Lindy enjoys time with family and friends, playing with her pugs and trying to save those lousy rose bushes.
