Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why the heck is this blog called Bikini Wax Chronicles?
A: Got your attention, didn’t it? Wanted a name that was funny, female, and provocative…think I nailed it? I write about both the fun and unfun parts of being a woman in these new-fangled times. As my daughter Ariel says, “all the shit you have to do to be accepted and successful as a female today.” Sometimes that even includes bikini waxes.
Q: So, are you going to write about ingrown hairs and stuff?
A: Not so often. Promise.
Q: Where can I read more of your work?
A: My books are available in libraries and on Amazon. Sleep Song, To Cross a Line, and The T.F. Letters are the most recent ones. Stay tuned for info on more forthcoming books and articles.
Q: Are you, or are you not, Karen Katz?
A: I answer to many things. As a company wife and when the girls were smaller I was often been called “Mrs. Katz,” and now rarely turn around to look for my mother-in-law. The CEO of Neiman Marcus is Karen Katz. Not me, but on the rare occasion I shop there I am treated very nicely. Karen Katz is a prolific picture book writer. Also not me, but we’ve been confused and I sometime think I should get a share of her royalties.
Q: Do you do public speaking? Lead bicycle trips? Pose for centerfolds?
A: Yes. Sometimes. Not with the best bikini wax in the world.
