“Bridget Jones meets Erma Bombeck”–The Fiction Forum
by Karen S. Bell
Suze Hall is at a crossroads. Her nemesis at work, Wanda, has been promoted and now will be her boss. Her husband, Bob, is leaving her and the three kids for a six-month sabbatical down under. To top it off, her best friend, Marcia, is missing in action—playing footsie with some new boyfriend!
Adding to this disaster stew, David, the gorgeous hunk who broke her young-girl’s heart has coincidentally popped back into her life and has something she desperately needs to keep her job.
Walking with Elephants, a lighthearted slice-of- life story, brings to the table the serious work/family issues facing women today. It explores the modern dichotomy of a workplace that is filled with homemakers who still must cook, clean, carpool on nights and weekends, shop for prom dresses, and “create” the holidays—such as Suze. But it also is filled with women who have the same drive as men, have no family responsibilities, and will do what ever it takes to get ahead.
So step into the shoes of Suze Hall and commiserate over workplace politics, titillate your sexual fantasies, ride the wave of a working mother, and fall-down laughing.

“Walking with Elephants speaks directly to any woman who has loved, laughed, worked outside the home and raised a family. Reading this book gave me the feeling that I was catching up with a treasured friend over a cup of coffee. Karen Bell speaks from the heart to the heart and sums it all up in the book’s essay,Walking With Elephants. Great read, perfect Christmas present for that special friend!” – Diane Wade, Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars
