"A Little Help from My Friends" follows the escapades of three gutsy, opinionated women, who tackle the aggravations of aging with the sunny abandonment of a latter-day Erma Bombeck.
Jean writes: “Ever since I first read a book, I wanted to write one. Putting pencil to paper is the fulfillment of my childhood romance with words and storytelling.
“In writing ‘my little purple book’ I asked, ‘What would Erma have written had she lived to be my age?’ I suspect she’d still be showing us the humor in our lives. She once said, ‘If you can laugh about something, you can live with it.’ I agree—but sometimes it takes a little help from our friends.”
