Life's on Fire has changed the dinner dynamics for thousands of families across the country.

Life's on Fire is the first weekday meal planning survival guide in my book series. It's all about moving families from take-out to eat at home easily. Our test group showed us what families want to eat in the work week and what the food needed to taste like, if a family was to stick to the plan. This book has continued to be a platform in getting people used to the idea that dinner can taste great at home and be easy! I wanted the cover to depict my life at the time; hence the name Life's on Fire and the cartoon cover of Paige hauling Ron away from the stove to get to a game!
