"A superbly practical guide for women inventors, especially those who are also mothers."—Autumn Stanley, author of Mothers and Daughters of Invention
About a year and a half ago, I left my job and decided to try out one of the many ideas that had been in my head for a long time. I went to my local book store and found a book that seemed to me to best address what I had been contemplating -- The Mom Inventor’s Handbook.
There wasn’t a question in my mind for which I didn’t find an answer in your book. Stage after stage, from creating a prototype to securing a trademark to creating packaging and generating sales, you guided me with clear explanations, helpful examples and important suggestions.
Your experience motivated me to strive for my dream – my own company manufacturing a product that I invented and believe in with all my heart. Today, my LulyBoo is selling in several baby boutiques and on numerous websites.
Several magazine articles have been written about me and the LulyBoo, and in each one, I recalled how instrumental your wonderful book was to my success. I have strongly recommended your book to other moms who have asked me how I did what I did.

The Mom Inventor's Handbook is a very detailed, hands on guide for taking an invention from idea to reality. There are several things I believe make it so useful: it's relevant and recent (no outdated advice here), it's based on real-world experience from an inventor and the others she has mentored, and it offers myriad resources to implement her advice. The examples of moms who have had success also make it inspirational.

If you are an inventor or have thoughts about inventing a new product, do yourself a favor and BUY THIS BOOK. I created a product and recently launched my Web site to sell my invention, OnTray, on. This book was my road map throughout the whole process.
