A hysterical look at family life in the 21st century, The Mother Load is a collection of the most popular columns I wrote for The Daily News of Newburyport and The Eagle-Tribune of North Andover.
If you’ve ever battled a spouse who likes to turn the thermostat down to the “arctic wasteland” setting, sent a child to sleepover camp without a single pair of underwear she could get hit by car in, or torn a rotator cuff trying to shoulder-shimmy in Zumba class, you know what it’s like to carry The Mother Load.
The Mother Load was a finalist for Foreword Reviews’ Book of the Year in humor and the Independent Publishers of New England 2014 Book Award. It was first runner-up for the 2014 New England Book Festival Award in the category of compilations and anthologies.
