CHANNILLO
Hamster Stew and Other Stories
By Grace Tierney

Series Description:

Hamster Stew is a diary-style comedy serial about the adventures of an Irish mom, Trish McTaggart, struggling with her teenage son, a scary ten year old daughter, and an out of control life which lurches from disaster to chaos. All she wants is a part-time job, more passion with her Scottish husband, and a hands-off mother-in-law but life, and her daughter, are conspiring against her dreams.

Perhaps the lessons her friend is giving her in "how to say no" will help?

Grace Tierney (www.gracetierney.com) is a columnist, author, and blogger writing in rural Ireland who collects stories of parenting disasters.

Acknowledgements:

Many thanks, as always, to Brendan, Daniel, and Eleanor. Don't worry, you're nothing like Trish's family.

I'm lucky enough to volunteer as a writing mentor on National Novel Writing Month each November and this series was begun during Camp NaNoWriMo July 2017. If you've ever wanted to write a story - it's a great place to start.
