My Books & Such


“Intelligent, poignant, self-deprecating approach to personal experiences that affect all of us. Karen writes in a way you’d want her on your, ‘Make sure I talk to her once a day!’ list…Funny and important.” –Steve Young, Award-Winning Sitcom Writer, Author, Columnist, National Lampoon Political Editor
“From the very first chapter, I found myself laughing and nodding – I always admire authors’ abilities to capture in words the emotions that run through my mind. In Invisible Underwear, Bus Stop Mommies and Other Things True to Life I know that you will, as I did, find yourself relating to so many of the stories.”
— Lisa Hendey, Founder,

The Bus Stop Mommies: Volume I
Invisible Underwear, Bus Stop Mommies and Other Things True to Life
Kinda like the original, out of print paperback, but with far better editing. Finally, something truly more filling but with fewer calories.

“Author Karen Rinehart is the kind of person we would all love as a next-door neighbor.  As a successful humor columnist, she’s realized one of the most laughable things in this world is life and how we live it. And in this snappy, peppy and oh-so-funny book, readers will laugh out loud at some of her observations and first-hand accounts. Yet, one of the most rewarding things about this book is that readers will know beyond a doubt that they are not alone. This book reminds us that even though our lives may seem abnormal, we’re probably more normal than we think. Every reader will be able to see herself in these pages. Besides, Karen gives a perfectly wonderful tip about Pine Sol that you won’t want to miss! This reviewer raises a cup of Starbucks coffee in a toast to Karen Rinehart for telling us it’s all going to be okay.”
— Joyce Handzo, In The Library Review

Sadly, someday you will need this book.

When emergency strikes, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Rather, you are prepared in the best possible way. Buy the book.”

“A must-have book for caregivers everywhere.”
~Dale Carter, MBA, Founder, Transition Aging Parent“Great information presented in an easy to read and humorous format, full of the wit we have come to enjoy from gifted writer & columnist Karen Rinehart.   It is a reminder that when panic sets in, we all forget the most basic things. This book is a must for every hospital gift shop and doctor’s waiting room.”
~Kelly Ritacco, Been There Done That in Rhode Island
