About the Author

A former advertising copywriter, Ellen Meister left the business world behind to raise a family and chase her fiction-writing dreams. She lives on Long Island with her husband and three children. This is her second novel.

"A sharp, laugh-out-loud novel about a doting wife who has finally had enough. Deeply funny and horribly familiar, TAKE MY HUSBAND is not to be missed! Ellen Meister is a modern day Dorothy Parker, a real treasure!" -- Beth Harbison, New York Times Bestselling author of Confessions of the Other Sister

"Take one tantalizing premise (could the death of her husband be a wife's ticket out? And would or could she ever really do anything to speed that up?) along with Meister's smartly sparkling writing, and you've got a page-turner with heart--and much needed laughs." -- Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

"Laugh-out-loud funny and deadly seriously, dark and light, it's got wild cliffhangers, twisty twists and an unexpected but highly satisfying ending. Do yourself a favor; READ THIS BOOK!" - David Henry Sterry, bestselling author of Master of Ceremonies: A True Story of Love, Murder, Roller Skates and Chippendales

"You know it's going to be fun as soon as you hear the title! Take My Husband is the perfect novel for anyone who's ever been annoyed by the sound of their husband chewing. Laurel, the hero, is the proverbial frog in a pot of water who doesn't realize it's boiling until too late. She's the leading lady we need today: a woman over fifty who attracts all kinds of suitors. A trip to Trader Joe's will never be the same." - Leslie Lehr, bestselling author of A Boob's Life
