Susan Orlins Releases CONFESSIONS OF A WORRYWART

Writer Susan Orlins worries about everything from her dog's self-esteem to decapitation by ceiling fan. Her anxiety also extends to the complicated territory of relationships: with ex-husbands, lovers, mothers, psychiatrists, and others - as she shares in her new memoir, Confessions of a Worrywart: Husbands, Lovers, Mothers, and Others.

Readers of her popular blog and award-winning essays, which have been featured in top-selling books such as Chicken Soup for the Soul and top publications, including The New York Times, Moment Magazine, Newsday, The Pennsylvania Gazette, and The Washington Post Magazine, can now enjoy a complete chronicle of her life's most humorous and heartbreaking moments - from her "starter marriage" to her encounter in France with a boyfriend she has not seen for four decades; he chokes on a chicken bone and she fears he has died. Motherhood, adoption, living in China, young love, dating after divorce, psychotherapy, dogs, and losing a parent are also strong themes.

"Susan is America's funniest neurotic since Woody Allen. Just be careful you don't crack a rib reading Confessions of a Worrywart," says Patricia Volk, author of Stuffed.

Orlins began chronicling her worries in 2009 on her blog, Confessions of a Worrywart. She also contributes to Huffington Post and writes about food, relationships, travel and more on NBC Universal's Life Goes Strong website.

"Readers tell me they identify with my stories. Some laugh with relief that this is my life and not theirs," says Orlins. Her insights, wit, and way with words evoke Nora Ephron.
