Mentalpause and Other Midlife Laughs

Mentalpause and Other Midlife Laughs

Do you often forget the words for common things, like "husband" or "sink"? Have you suddenly found subzero temperatures pleasant? Do you survive on chocolate supplements?

Ask these questions of any woman who has been through menopause, is going through it, or is soon to hit it, and she'll say yes (and then, most likely, cry).

About the Book

Midlife and menopause can be . . . what was I going to say? Oh yeah, they can be challenging times. But there are plenty of reasons to be thankful, too. In this warm and lighthearted book, the incomparable Laura Jensen Walker celebrates life and helps you laugh in the midst of hot flashes and memory loss.

Laura shares hilarious vignettes and words of wisdom from her own experience and those of other women who have been there, are there, or are headed into “mentalpause.” Don’t worry when you find yourself entering “fuddy-duddydom” or suddenly see your mother’s face in the mirror. Turn down the air-conditioning and join Laura for a lot of laughs instead.

Laura Jensen Walker went into early menopause after her bout with cancer and can sympathize with other “mentalpause” sufferers and survivors. As in Thanks for the Mammogram!, she uses hilarious vignettes and a delightful mix of wit and wisdom to connect with her readers. With chapters about how “All Varicose Veins Lead to Rome” and “PMS Is a Picnic in the Park,” this book helps women dealing with “mentalpause” and those around them gain a better understanding–and certainly a lighter attitude–about this passage of life.

Mentalpause and Other Midlife Laughs will get readers laughing at themselves as they hear Laura lightheartedly describe her age spots, lament her sagging everything, and look anew at love after forty.

About the Author
Laura Jensen Walker

Laura Jensen Walker has loved mysteries ever since she read Trixie Belden in the fourth grade in Racine, Wisconsin (home of the world-famous delectable Danish kringle.) A former journalist, Laura is the author of several chick-lit novels and humorous non-fiction books, including Thanks for the Mammogram! After more than a decade away from publishing she is thrilled to be back and writing in a new genre--cozy mysteries! Her first mystery, Murder Most Sweet (A Bookish Baker Mystery) came out in September 2020, and her second cozy, Hope, Faith & a Corpse (A Faith Chapel Mystery) releases in January 2021. Laura lives in Northern California with her Renaissance-man husband and their canine daughter Mellie.
