• Are You Divorced? • Are You Remarried? • Are You Dating Someone with Children? Once upon a time, in a family down the street, there was a King and a Queen who had two children. One day, the impossible happened. The King and Queen divorced. Eventually, the King remarried. There was a new Queen aka The Stepmother. Chaos reigned. Naively, when the stepmother joined the family, she expected her fairy tale to continue. Instead, questions plagued her mind. • Why doesn’t anyone in the stepfamily listen to me? • Why doesn’t the biological parent see what I see? • Why am I so frustrated? Laugh and cry as The Evil Stepmother Speaks takes you on the stepmother’s journey as she seeks to find the magic potion that will unify her family and bring sanity to the chaos. At last, you will learn how to reclaim Your Happily Ever After. Meet the mystical characters that teach the secrets of stepfamily happiness. You will cheer for stepfamily expert Barb Goldberg as she identifies and shows you how to mix and mingle with your new family.
Finally, the classic fairy tale is retold from the stepmother perspective. You will laugh and cry as the "Evil" stepmother travels on her journey to find the magic potion that will blend her family. Here is the book that tells the stepmother specific tactics and strategies on how to attain a happy family. The story starts like this... Once upon a time, in a family down the street, there was a King and a Queen. They never believed that they would be divorced. But, then again, none of us ever believe that! In walks the naïve stepmother who has no idea what is to befall her. As the stepmother takes her journey to find how to blend her family, you will laugh and cry along the way. The author's rationale behind the story goes like this... I always wished that I had known what was going to happen to me, once I became a stepmother. I wish that someone had taught me how to laugh. I wish that someone had told me what to do. I wish that someone had shown me that it was all going to work out. Hopefully, The Evil Stepmother Speaks grants these wishes to new and future stepmothers. Here is what some readers have said about The Evil Stepmother Speaks... “The Evil Stepmother Speaks is a love letter to step parents everywhere.” "The Evil Stepmother Speaks is the new fairy tale. You will learn practical ideas to help your family bond, while making your soul sing. Get ready to laugh along the way." The Evil Stepmother Speaks will become one of my very important 'stepmom resources', a book that I go to over and over again for support and tips and grounding. SO many great teachers in this book!
