In her book, Drug Tested for Being Happy, Kathy Thorson Gruhn takes actual events throughout her life, and in an Erma Bombeck fashion, tickles your funny bone. Whether she tries to teach her hamster to run on an old 33 RPM album or finds herself in predicaments that most people find unbelievable, she comes out smelling like a rose.
A speech pathologist for 35 years, she has been telling stories since she was a young girl. When she met Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, he insisted she write these stories down and share her humor with the world. She is now working on her second book of funny stories, Fight Naked, which will be available in fall 2020.
“When we talk, we take turns, but when we laugh, we laugh together,” she says.
