A Real Mother
“If Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck had a Kentucky love-child, her name would be Denise Malloy.”
– Chrysti M. Smith, host of the radio series “Chrysti the Wordsmith,” produced at KGLT-FM in Bozeman, Montana
“Denise Malloy gives us a deliciously snarky, loving, and brutally honest look at REAL motherhood . . . and if Denise is any indication, we don’t have to throw out our sense of humor with the bath water.”
– Katie Goodman, comedian, creator of “Broad Comedy,” and author of Improvisation for the Spirit.
“In this hilarious collection where wry humor and loving warmth prevail, Denise Malloy’s foray into parenthood puts her at the pinnacle with Erma Bombeck and Dave Barry. A must-read for anyone who ever laughed or cried over being a kid or a Real parent.”
–Lauri Olsen, author of Cold Moon Honor, Whispers on the Wind
“Denise Malloy has one of those remarkable outlooks that can turn any situation into comedy . . .”
–Jennifer Lowe-Anker, mother, artist and author of Forget Me Not
“Denise Malloy reminds readers that you don’t have to be crude or edgy to be gut-bustingly funny. Call her a modern-day Erma Bombeck, but somehow she manages to consistently slice and dice modern-day living with good old-fashioned humor. While no pet or human in her family is excused from her keen eye for the absurd (and then writing about it), she perhaps shines brightest when poking fun at herself – which she does, often.”
–Megan Ault Regnerus, Managing Editor, Montana Quarterly and Balance Magazines, blogger, minor catastrophes
“Required reading for parents of all ages. Denise Malloy hits the all the right notes while relating the highs and lows of being a Mom.”
–Michele Corriel, freelance writer and author
