No More Baby's Mama Drama: Keeping It Out of Your Life and Marriage
You can read a bit of it on Google Books. I rarely promote this book now that this part of my life is no longer an issue and a few of my viewpoints on blended families and marriage have since changed. However, I've learned since that as women we must continue to have compassion for all women and that the men in our lives must facilitate justice and leadership on a consistent basis. This book did receive press in a variety of media outlets that included The Star-Ledger and Sister2Sister magazine.

I was so excited to have my first (and only to this date) short story published in this anthology.
