Suburban Haiku: Poetic Dispatches from Behind the Picket Fence
Peyton Price understands the psyche of the suburban mother. Once an ambitious go-getter with a respected career, Price veered off the fast track and into the carpool lane. Wanting what's best for two kids and a husband, Price finds it hard not to keep up with the Joneses-especially when they are living right next door. Yet, unlike other micro-managing mothers, Price does not unwind with a glass of wine, but with haiku.
True to form, every haiku is a 17-syllable catharsis-capturing the frustration and elation of daily suburban motherhood. Price's topics, or rather, targets, range from boring PTA meetings and kids' sports to the elusive spa day, and everything in between.

Om, the Poses You'll Do!

Sun Salutations to you!
You've made up your mind.
You're off to start yoga!
Not sure what you'll find.

You have yoga pants on.
You have feet on your mat.
You can bend yourself forward,
and slightly bend back.

In this lighthearted parody of the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh, the Places You'll Go, you will discover what happens when a yoga journey begins. Through humor and rhyme, Om, the Poses You'll Do teaches the new student that a yoga practice is not just about a pose and reminds experienced yoga practitioners that to grow means sometimes going back to where you started. And, above all, maybe it's not about the places we go, but instead about how we get there. A perfect gift for all the yogis in your life - whether they are just starting out or well on their way!

Trumpericks: A Doggerel Journey Through the Twisted Mind of Donald Trump
Finally! Here it is, the treat you've been waiting for -- a covfefe table book for the coastal elite in you. It's a compendium of more than 150 limericks conjuring the bizarre musings of the Tweeter-in-Chief, written in his own voice. They were inspired, or provoked, by the almost daily onslaught of strange occurrences marking the first nine months of the Trump presidency. From the inauguration crowd size kerfuffle through Trump's characterization as a "moron" by his own Secretary of State, we cover it all. These are limericks the likes of which you've never seen, believe me! Colorful illustrations as well as related tweets and photographs accompany the poetry. And to help bring back some of the gory details you might have forgotten, informative endnotes are provided. These satirical verses document and attempt to bring some humor to very challenging times. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll sigh that existential sigh. We sincerely hope there will be no need for a sequel.
