About the Author

Kara Kinney Cartwright always says, please, thank you, and excuse me--even on the subway. She married a total good guy and, through relentless lecturing, threatening, teasing, cash bribing, and tricking, they have raised two sons who are not assh*les, for the most part. If you happen to know her in person, this book is not about you, for the most part. She lives near Washington, DC, and works as a law book editor.
