Judy Gruen’s main occupation is lobbying the federal government to create a Division of Cellulite Studies at the Department of Health and Human Services. In her spare time, she writes books, humor columns, and complaint letters. Her latest book, The Women’s Daily Irony Supplement, was published by Creative Minds Press. Starbucks selected a quote from the book that appeared on more than 5 million of its cups, and Judy was quite excited by this until one of her kids observed that this meant that people would be throwing away her quote and her name 5 million times. Already generating good buzz, The Women’s Daily Irony Supplement quickly became one of the top ten Hot New Releases on Amazon.com in the humor essay category. Judy’s previous books include Till We Eat Again: Confessions of a Diet Dropout, named “Best Humor Book of 2003” by the Midwest Independent Publishers Association. The book was also serialized on eDiets.com. Her first book, Carpool Tunnel Syndrome: Motherhood as Shuttle Diplomacy, also achieved widespread notice for a first book. Working not only as author but also self-publisher, Judy sold thousands of copies to Scholastic Book Fairs, giving the book nationwide exposure. Woman’s Day magazine also published an excerpt of the book, “How Green Was My Checkbook,” a favorite chapter of many readers.
