About the Author

Kristen McGuiness works in fundraising for a Los Angeles nonprofit serving low-income children, youth, and families. Before she was paid to spend time with four-year-olds, she worked in publishing for St. Martin's Press, Simon & Schuster, and HarperCollins (via the office of Judith Regan), and in film as a junior creative executive. Her first screenplay, The Betty, was optioned last year. She spends her free time hanging out with horses, shamans, and people who used to drink.

Reviews

Praise for 51/50

"Dating is something every woman has to do, but it's so much more fun to read about Kristen doing it, and living to tell about it so hilariously, than actually having to suffer through it yourself. Thank you, sister." --Heather McDonald, comedian and author of You'll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again

"Never has the quest for love and sobriety seemed so hilariously poignant. A fizzy cocktail of Bridget Jones with a splash of A Million Little Pieces, Kristen McGuiness has bared her soul to give us a refreshing portrait of a young woman hell-bent on finding the perfect guy--only to find herself along the way." --Kirsten Smith, co-screenwriter of Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You, and The Ugly Truth; author of The Geography of Girlhood

"Any woman who can go on fifty-one dates stone-cold sober is showing pluck that can't be ignored. Kristen McGuiness has concocted a truly terrific read." --Deanna Kizis, author of How to Meet Cute Boys and Finishing Touches

"As a woman who's been dating in Los Angeles for five years--sober--I do miss the 'beer goggles.' If you aren't using booze to get through it, baby, you better laugh, or cry. This book will have you doing both." --Lisa Ann Walter, actress and comedian
