My journey as an author is a fairly new one. I started writing DICKOTOMY in August of 2018 after I quit my corporate job. Along the way, I realized how passionate I felt about women’s rights and knew that DICKOTOMY would be just the first book in the DICKLESS series.
“I couldn’t stand to be in an environment any longer where constant disappointment had a daily presence.
On my last day of employment, I left at lunch time. It was a beautiful sunny August day.
A perfect day to start my journey as an author.”
…from DICKOTOMY, A DICKLESS MEMOIR.
A dickless memoir
What defines you?
Have you ever given this any thought?
In this memoir, I wondered if my strict childhood, my naivety as an immigrant, my insecurities in standing up for myself and others, or my struggles to find my voice in corporate America were my defining moments. But then it struck me:
Who defines you? was a much better question to ask. In my case, was it Daddy Dearest, who made all the rules, or The Alcoholic, who controlled my every move, or The Narcissistic Bully, who only cared about himself, or The Distrusting CEO, who heard what I had to say, but who didn’t listen? And what about The Guardian, who helped rebuild my trust in men, The Boys, who taught me about unconditional love, or The Soulmate, who simply let me be me?
DICKOTOMY acknowledges the importance of the Ricks and Dicks in every woman’s life.
Ultimately, it is up to us to decide who we truly are.
I’m so thankful for the BEST RICKs any woman could ask for. Pictured with me, from bottom left to bottom right, are four of my favorites:
The Office Husband, One of The Boys, The Guardian, and The Soulmate.

Here’s my idea for the next book in the DICKLESS series:
FRIEND, FOE, OR BITCH?
As I began work on DICKOTOMY, I started to wonder about some of my own behaviors toward men AND women. I realized that I could never fully explain myself unless I could understand the history of women, beginning with Eve. Yikes, what a task!
So… I rolled up the sleeves on my tank top and started my research that will form the basis for my second DICKLESS(TM) book, which will focus on women. While I’m not sure about the title yet, “Friend, Foe, or Bitch” has surfaced as a first idea.
