Alesia Holliday’s first book was all about being a desperate housewife. The autobiographical E-mail to the Front was the first book to tell the real truth about military families when one spouse is at war. After several years as a trial lawyer, Alesia is a “recovering” attorney turned award-winning author. For news of her novels—romantic comedies, chick-lit and mysteries—please visit her online at www.alesiaholliday.com. For news of her latest Desperate Mom moment, you can visit her blog and laugh at her. (Everybody else does.) Alesia, who in her college days was a lot like Gabrielle, is now firmly in Lynette’s camp. Except Alesia’s kids are way, way better behaved. And there are no rats.
