In addition to being my fabulous partner in crime at The Detroit Card Co., Cara Trautman is a talented actor and improviser, which is actually how I first met her nine years ago. Then bam! Last year she wrote a book! And subsequently, she turned out to be an amazing greeting card copywriter and we decided to start our company. Is there anything this girl can't do?!
Happy(ish) is available on Amazon as an e-book and was just recently released in paperback which is very exciting, especially for me because I'm old school that way. And because I designed the back cover. The front cover is great, but the back cover, ooo la la. Here's the summary from said back cover:
Jane Pearson is single, thirty-five, and reluctantly dressed as a squirrel. When she’s not covered in fake fur, she sleeps with the wrong men, avoids laundry, sets her vibrator on fire, and dodges her mother’s demanding phone calls. Surrounded by eccentric friends, an offbeat family, peculiar coworkers, and a twenty-four-year-old goldfish, Jane searches for happiness through a maze of dirty clothes and hard lessons. Happy(ish) is set in the metro Detroit area.
I couldn't have asked for a better business partner than this brilliant lady. I'm over the moon about the adventure that Cara and I have set out on and can't wait to see where it takes us.
