Description


Never mind the Real Housewives of Orange County--Marla Jo Fisher is the woman everyone can relate to, complete with bad parenting, rotten dogs, ill health, and fashion faux pas. For nearly two decades, in the Orange County Register and many syndicated papers, readers have delighted in Marla Jo's subversive humor, cranky intellect, and huge heart on her journey through broke, single, after-40 motherhood, when she adopted Cheetah Boy and Curly Girl, to her oddball adventures around the globe, to the sublime ridiculousness of life next door. Even while facing a devastating diagnosis, Fisher teaches us that humor is the balm that eases and the very thing that binds us together.

About the Author


Marla Jo Fisher writes the Frumpy Middle-Aged Mom column, which runs in eleven of the Southern California News Group's newspapers, including the Orange County Register. She was a workaholic newspaper reporter before adopting two children out of foster care at age 46, picking up a scruffy dog along the way, and she has somehow managed to keep them all alive. A former award-winning investigative reporter, Fisher now juggles her job as a newspaper columnist with being a single mom, all the while being exhorted from everywhere to be thinner, smarter, sexier, better exercised, more philanthropic, more frugal, more stylish, more devoted to her kids, more devoted to her job, better dressed, a healthier cook, a tidier housekeeper, and a more engaged citizen.Fisher's columns and travel articles have also appeared in many newspapers and websites nationwide, including the Philadelphia Inquirer, Miami Herald, Deseret News, Wichita Eagle, Waterbury Republican-American, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Sacramento Bee, Wilkes-Barre Times Leader, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Charlotte Observer.

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
