There’s no such thing as too much information in Heather’s world. Funny mom Heather Davis leaves no topic unturned. With her trademark dry wit and knack for storytelling, TMI Mom over shares family life with stories from the homefront — in the minivan, the bedroom, and out in the big, bad world. Available in trade paperback and ebook at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and ask your favorite retailer for the book.
