In her first autobiography, Pants Optional, Carol Steingreaber offers a hilarious, unrestricted insight into her life thus far in Iowa, USA. The reader is a privileged passenger on the journey, invited to buckle up for the ride as Carol shares her stories from the sibling squabbles of childhood, to cringeworthy dating moments, marriage and various stages of motherhood. Her witty, "tell-it-straight" writing style conjures up images you can't help but laugh at, often accompanied by photos that speak a thousand (usually comical) words. Carol provides the reader with "UNconventional tips" on a whole range of themes such as housework and hospitals, illness and injury, Nerf guns and nudity, safety concerns and sex, friendship, faith and a great many more. Moments of eternal embarrassment are interspersed with flashes of comic/parenting genius, and every reader will find a nugget or three (or twenty!) to inspire them. A cracking read, and highly recommended.
Carol Lynne Steingreaber graduated in 1987 from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa with double majors in English Literature and Writing, proclaiming on her graduation day, "Someday I will write a book!" She worked as a correspondent, proofreader and copywriter in Des Moines, Iowa for six years before starting her tenure as a stay-at-home mom. Exhausted from answering the question, "What do you do all day?" (Here's another unconventional tip: never ask a stay-at-home mom or dad this question unless you want to get cold-cocked), she took a position as a marketing director in 2006. In 2013, Carol started writing her first humorous autobiography, Pants Optional, in her free time. She currently resides in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with her husband, Paul.
