Lee Gaitan is a recognized “bounce back” expert (unless she’s not wearing eye liner, in which case she often goes unrecognized), known for looking on the bright side and finding the silver lining in dark clouds. But sometimes the best way to part the dark clouds and discover the sunshine is by way of a mild rant or musing on the myriad irritations of modern life.
If you like your optimism served with a side of snarkiness, her newest book, Lite Whines and Laughter: Mild Rants and Musings on the Mundane, is for you.
She is the author of two other books, Falling Flesh Just Ahead and My Pineapples Went to Houston — Finding the Humor in My Dashed Hopes, Broken Dreams and Plans Gone Outrageously Awry. She also wrote a chapter in the bestselling book The Divinity of Dogs.
Lee lives with her husband and dog in suburban Atlanta where she divides her time among speaking, writing, teaching and keeping tabs on her tri-continental family.
