Carline has also authored mysteries, romantic suspense, and a memoir. I haven't read her books in those genres, but if her sense of humor comes through in them, they've got to be fun!
Column: "So You Want to Have a Resolution"
Every year I swear not to make any New Year's resolutions, and every year I can't resist making a few, anyway. It's like trying on clothes you wouldn't normally choose, just to see how they look. I attempt to change my behavior, to see if a new year can make a new me.
I picked two resolutions to try on this year; I hope one of them fits.

Column: Tripping On An Anniversary
I'm convinced that wolves mate for life because they can't speak English. When the female snaps at the male, she can only mean, "Stop it!" And there is nothing for the male in wolf-speak that translates to, "Stop what?"

Author Website: Gayle Carline
Synopsis (from Amazon):
When Gayle Carline clawed her way into her local newspaper office and groveled until they gave her a weekly humor column, she worried about not having enough material. Then she took a look at her life. Nearly every week something in her house or car needs repair, her son doesn't know why being able to see his carpet is a big deal, and her husband believes less is more, especially when it comes to communication. In What Would Erma Do, she chronicled her first two years as a paid exaggerator. Now she's back with two more years of merriment, along with editorial high jinks and readers' opinions. It's the most fun she's ever had without a credit card.
