New from Diane Laney Fitzpatrick
A Working Writers Recommendation:
I just finished this book and absolutely LOVED it. I gave it five stars on Amazon and have to recommend it for a light, funny, heartwarming read.
Your toothbrush and deodorant are in a box marked Basement Storage, your great-grandmother’s heirloom china is in pieces, and you’re in your husband’s underwear, making Hamburger Helper in a Little Tykes plastic frying pan in the microwave. You’ve just moved.
Could things get worse? Probably. But then they’ll get better, especially if you can see the humor in that hare-brained, heartbreaking and hilarious thing called moving. Home Sweet Homes: How Bundt Cakes, Bubble Wrap, and My Accent Helped Me Survive Nine Moves takes you along on Diane Laney Fitzpatrick’s cross-country moves with colicky babies, sulky teens, dogs, frogs and goldfish. With 42 Moving Tips, Home Sweet Homes is a side-splitting survivors guide to moving, that is sure to keep you laughing throughout life’s moving moments. Hey! The author will donate half of her profits from “Home Sweet Homes” to the National Military Family Association, for programs that help military children cope with frequent moves and separations from a parent.

More About Diane Laney Fitzpatrick:
Diane Laney Fitzpatrick was a newspaper reporter and editor in Ohio and a freelance writer in seven states before writing “Home Sweet Homes: How Bundt Cakes, Bubble Wrap, and My Accent Helped Me Survive Nine Moves.” As a reporter she wrote about zoning variances and storm sewers, township trustees and teacher contracts. As a freelance writer she wrote about parenting, Catholic religious education, home entertaining and health issues. Finally she decided to write about her own expertise: moving.
She has moved across the country with colicky babies, sulky teens, dogs, frogs and goldfish, into every type of house, with every possible snag. Even after the book was published, she moved again and added two more experiences: Flying her dog from coast-to-coast, and having her piano brought in through a window on a crane.
Diane is donating 50% of her profits from “Home Sweet Homes” to the National Military Family Association, because it helps military family kids cope with frequent moves and adjustments.
