Maura Stone is a comedy writer with eight books under her belt, three awards, and praise from literary critics. She finds it therapeutic to weave her life choices into stories rather than spend money on therapy. Through humor her books address the issue of moral integrity and consequences of standing up for what’s right. Readers discover healing and joy while rethinking their moral high ground from her unexpectedly profound insights and edgy unforgettable adventures. She has even set a new standard for satire due to her unique style, taking the genre to an exciting new direction. Maura lives upstate New York with her feral feline companion, Maxwell.

Titans like Apple, amazon and AT&T cower when I say, “Guess I gotta blog about that!” Okay, so they may not cower much, but the blog is a powerful tool. As we say today, "The blog is mightier than the litigation."(less)

My Real Blog: http://kiss-keepitsimpleschmuck.blogs...

I started a blog here on goodreads which hardly had any visibility or interest so I removed it.

I'm having a helluva time ploughing through this so-called action packed novel. Whoever edited this book should be shot - the poor writing is a deterrent and a distraction. I'm sure it has good concepts, but I prefer quality over crap. ...more
Maura Stone asked a question about Five-Star Fleecing:
Five-Star Fleecing by Maura Stone
Can someone explain to me why someone who loves a satire that condemns racism and greed and gives a 5-star rating and wonderful review retracts the rating and review? Does it mean that they endorse racism and greed?
