Oh damn, I wrote a book!


It’s called The Sleepless Nanny and you can get it here!

If you don’t have a Kindle, you’re crazy! But you can still read my book on just about any device through Amazon’s Kindle app. The app is free, the book is $4.99 in the US. It’s also available in the UK and Germany, but my brain doesn’t do price conversions. You can also download a sample of my book for free.

What’s The Sleepless Nanny about?
It’s about a girl who drops out of college and moves to New York City to work as a nanny. Sound boring? Only if you think sex, drugs, rock n roll, violence, lies, secrets, aliens, time-travel and espionage are boring. Okay, those last three aren’t really in there. Well maybe a touch of espionage if you count eavesdropping over a baby monitor.

Is This Real Life?
Those of you who know me well remember that I was indeed a nanny in New York. Twice, in fact. My experiences as a nanny in the late 1980’s early 1990’s definitely inform the story, but this is fiction. New Yorkers, if I worked for you, was friends with you, or wiped your ass during this time period, I promise: This book is not about you.

Aren’t Nannies Goody-Goodies with a Stick Up their Ass?
You don’t know any real nannies do you? My protagonist is somewhere between Mary Poppins and Peyton Flanders. Not Practically Perfect, but no murderous intent either.

 

 

Give it a shot and let me know what you think here in the comments! Or review it on Amazon.com or Goodreads.

  1. I’ve just bought it … £3.50 in the UK…. might never actually read it – but I’ve enjoyed the blog for years – so I figure I’ll give a little something back 😉

  2. Bought it, started it last night. I intended to read more tonight but my demon toddler decided he didn’t fucking need to sleep and would torture me for 2 hours instead. Reading will commence tomorrow but so far I likey 🙂
