Coming April 17: What’s Your M.O.?

Channel your inner Michelle and tackle all of life’s challenges!

Allow me to introduce my new book: What’s Your M.O.?: Live Your Best Life, the Michelle Obama Way. It publishes on April 17 and I am excited to get it into the hands of readers.

It was a pleasure to write. It even made jury duty a pleasure! Sitting in the jurors lounge waiting for my name to be called, I wrote scenario after scenario, consulting various books about and official speeches by the former First Lady. As you can imagine, I got fired up during the process, because Michelle Obama is a force of nature.

Like Mister Rogers and Oprah, it’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t love or at least grudgingly admire Michelle Obama. And me? I freakin’ love her.

So let me tell you a little about the book: It features 50 different scenarios common to most women, such as coping with mansplaining and salary parity to struggling to find sexy time with your partner. I share what Michelle said or did in a particular situation and then pivot to how you can use her example in concrete ways in your own life.

Add to that her most inspiring quotes, various lists and a certain turkey chili recipe, and you get an idea of how chockablock the book is with insight and advice. And let’s face it: don’t we all need a bit of inspiration and guidance during these tumultuous times?

I’ll be kicking things off with an interactive launch party and signing at Secret Garden Books on April 17. Check out my events page for more information. Meanwhile, you can pre-order from your favorite indie bookstore through indiebound.

Let me leave you with an inspiring MO quote of the day: “There’s nothing sexier than a smart woman…we have been told to live by a certain mold; it’s time to break it.”
