Jenna McCarthy is an internationally published writer, speaker, former radio personality and the author of several books including Pretty Much Screwed, the forthcoming Everything's Relative and If It Was Easy They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon: Living with and Loving the TV-Addicted, Sex-Obsessed, Not-So-Handy Man You Married. (Please note that it says the blah-blah-blah man YOU married, not the one she married. Her husband likes it when she points that out.) Once she was officially "middle aged," [cringes] Jenna had no choice but to pen I've Still Got It... I Just Can't Remember Where I Put It: Awkwardly True Tales from the Far Side of Forty. At least, she THINKS that's the title.
She's also so-written a middle grade fiction series (Maggie Malone and the Mostly Magical Boots) and has some fun children's picture books coming out soon, so stay tuned. Oh, and she gave a TED talk (more than three million views, baby!) that some people didn't hate.
Over the years Jenna's byline has appeared in Allure, Cosmo, Glamour, Ladies' Home Journal, Real Simple, Self, Shape and dozens of other magazines and several anthologies. She collects hats, speaks really bad French, and is positive she'd be a tennis star if the net didn't keep getting in the way.

Her two memoirs were “hilarious.”* Her first novel, Pretty Much Screwed, was “brilliant.”** Now, Jenna McCarthy returns with a novel of crazy last wishes and life-changing first steps…
When their mother dies, sisters Jules, Brooke, and Lexi breathe a collective sigh of relief. Their days of being hurt and controlled by Juliana Alexander are over.
It turns out, Juliana isn’t about to let a little detail like death stop her.
The three estranged sisters—one control freak, one peacekeeper and one red hot mess—are shocked to discover that their mother was hiding a massive fortune, one that promises to completely transform all of their lives. But in classic Juliana fashion, there’s a catch. Three of them, to be exact.
Now Jules, Brooke, and Lexi find themselves forced to rely on one another in order to become the women their mother wanted them to be. With millions of dollars on the line and as many obstacles in the way, the sisters embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery, forgiveness, and the real meaning of wealth.

Jenna McCarthy presents an uproarious but insightful peek behind the curtains at the unholy state of matrimony. With ballsy wit and bawdy humor, she explores everything from male domestic idiocy and the frustrating misfires in spousal communication to how to stay true to the peskiest of vows: forsaking all others. Part in-your-face guide, part brutal confession, this book is a must-read manifesto on surviving marriage in an age when everyone seems to live forever and getting a divorce is as easy as ordering a latte.
