Donna Cavanagh is founder of HumorOutcasts.com (HO) and the partner publishing

company, HumorOutcasts Press which now includes the labels Shorehouse Books

and Corner Office Books (HOPress-Shorehousebooks.com). Cavanagh launched HO

as an outlet for writers to showcase their work in a world that offered few avenues for

humor. HO now features the creative talents of more than 100 aspiring and

accomplished writers, producers, comics and authors from all over the world. Known

for its eclectic content, HumorOutcasts has something for everyone. As a writer

herself, Cavanagh is a former journalist who made an unscheduled stop into humor

more than 20 years ago. Her syndicated columns helped her gain a national audience

when her work landed in the pages of First Magazine, USA Today and other national

media. She has taught the how-to lessons of humor, blogging and publishing at The

Philadelphia Writers' Conference and the Erma Bombeck Writer's Workshop. Recently

named Humor Writer of the Month by the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop,

Cavanagh has penned four humor books Reality: Fantasy’s Evil Twin, Try and Avoid

the Speed Bumps, A Canine’s Guide to the Good Life (which she wrote with her dogs

Frankie and Lulu) and the USA Books Contest finalist Life On the Off Ramp.

Cavanagh hopes her latest book How to Write and Share Humor: Techniques to

Tickle Funny Bones and Win Fans will encourage writers not only to embrace their

humor talents but show them off as well.
