Jill’s New York Times bestselling collection of essays, Confessions of a Scary Mommy (2012), not only elevated the visibility of Scary Mommy nationwide, but was also translated into ten foreign languages gaining Jill a worldwide following. Jill followed up the next year with Motherhood Comes Naturally (And Other Vicious Lies) and a year later with Scary Mommy’s Guide to Surviving the Holidays, which was released as a collaborative ebook with all proceeds supporting Jill’s former non-profit, Scary Mommy Nation.

“If motherhood is starting to feel like a story without a plot, my advice is to pretend you’re sick and lock yourself in the bathroom with this book. Highly recommended.” — Library Journal
