Because I Said So: Parenting and Family Life Humorous Short Stories
(My Life … MOM?! Book 1)
by Michelle Hoppe
Genre: Parenting & Family Life/Motherhood/Humor
1.99 at time of posting!
Do the words “What’s for dinner?” make you cringe? Are you tired of one-word answers from the teenager in the house? These hilarious stories are a laugh-out-loud look at everyday life. From “A construction company…what were we thinking?” to “My Big, Fat Tongue,” you won’t be able to put this one down.
Because I Said So! by comedy author Michelle Hoppe is a look into the ups and downs of raising a family, while attempting to become an author. Take a peek into the family life of the Hoppe clan and discover how Michelle turned everyday life into delightfully funny stories.
Michelle was blessed with the ability to view life through rose tinted glasses. Unlike Claire Tomalin, who said “My life was a sort of series of random disasters,” Michelle’s life, with her twisted sense of humor and a madcap home crew, is more a series of random “by the seat of your pants motherhood”.
Growing up, Michelle loved to read books by Erma Bombeck; books like If Life is a Bowlful of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits and Motherhood taught her to look for the humor in life. Michelle’s favorite Erma quote “When humor goes, there goes civilization!” seemed like a call to action, so this comedy autobiography is her contribution to the continuation of mankind, oops…personkind!
This hilarious book contains humor about family life, motherhood, and parenting, and is sure to keep you laughing from beginning to end.

Lots of Humor
In a nation where only the nobility are supposed to have special powers, Connor’s secret curse might hold the key to stopping a war and saving his village from destruction. His best friend Hamish has a habit of sucking on rocks that might just unlock an ancient power not seen in generations. Their friend Jean is the local healer. She has no magic, but she’s smarter than the boys combined. And Verena is one of the invaders, with a bag full of tricks that can stop entire armies.
Join Connor and his friends as they are swept up in an epic adventure, with a unique magic system based on rocks, and lots of humor.
When armies assemble around their remote village, Connor is caught in the middle. While his friends try to free the village under siege, Connor peels back layers of intrigue and half-truths to find secrets neither side wants him to know. Surrounded by deadly enemies that all claim to be his friends, Connor must choose a course with the lives of everyone he loves hanging in the balance.
His only hope is to gamble everything on a curse that could destroy them all unless his final choice is Set in Stone.

Giovanni Roma was jilted at the altar. Twice. Meeting Natalie is an enchanting distraction—too bad she’s engaged to another man. To top it off, Giovanni’s mother has a mouth with no filter and is obsessed with finding her son a suitable baby-maker.
Natalie DeMarco is a good cop with one problem. Cold feet. Her fiancé is a decent man, but she’s starting to wonder if decent is good enough. Maybe the doubts could be blamed on Giovanni, that guitar-making Italian hunk next door.
Giovanni knows he must do something, but things get out of hand when he learns he’s not the only one who objects to the wedding.
Dog Day Wedding is a fast, fun romantic comedy that gives new meaning to the term, “Shotgun Wedding.”
Inspiration for growing in gritty places.
