A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken)
By Stephanie Krikorian

Forty, chronically single, and up an extra 20 pounds, TV news producer Stephanie Krikorian fell victim to The Great Recession, finding herself suddenly unemployed. One unwanted pregnancy away from being a Lifetime Original Movie, Stephanie had to reinvent herself . . . and fast. So, to keep her head above water, she started ghostwriting self-help and diet books for a variety of well-known experts. However, she didn’t just write each book she took on, she lived it―chanting, journaling, reflecting, reframing, removing SIBO foods from her diet (or was it adding?)―whatever it took to get deep into the heart of each project.


I laughed and related to every page of this crazy mission to fix everything… that didn’t need fixing. A wise, witty and thought-provoking book that ends in just the place you’d hope it would. A great read whether you have a Reiki healer on speed dial, or, well, not. Marianne Power, author of Help Me! One woman’s quest to find out if self-help really can change her life.
