Released in April 2018, this hilariously-packed anthology is NOW available for purchase on Amazon. Laugh Out Loud: 40 Women Humorists Celebrate Then and Now…Before We Forget, is written by Allia Zobel Nolan and 40 funny ladies from the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop (including yours truly, Lisa Marlin, confessing to being a Madonna Wannabe in 1985 and why I’m thankful social media did not exist back then).

Erma’s daughter Betsy Bombeck says, “My mother would have loved Laugh Out Loud. It’s the kind collection that honors her sense of the ridiculous and shines a brilliant spotlight on the inane.The stories in this book reflect a philosophy she always believed: “If you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it.”
