Contest: Help name our disappointed housewife!

~Friends of The Disappointed Housewife ~

Now that we’re a few months past our five-year anniversary, I’ve been thinking a lot about the lady at the top of our home page—how steadfast she is, how stern but fully loving, just like the kind of mom who turns out a Greta Thunberg, a Michelle Obama, or a Justin Jones or Pearson.

The thing is, I realized I don’t know her name.

It’s time to give her one, and I’m opening it up to you, our loyal readers, to come up with just the right moniker.

This is a contest, and the winner will receive a copy of my first novel, Parts Unknown (William Morrow/HarperCollins), in hardback or paperback (your choice). Two runners-up can choose a Kindle edition copy of any of my other books.

I’m looking for a first name, but I’ll consider first and last if you can come up with a real gem. Use of online name generators is fine and encouraged. And give yourself a fighting chance by consulting our Mission Statement too.

Send your name idea to, one per customer, and let’s see who can nail her personality with a name that will seem absolutely perfect, almost inevitable, after the fact. Just like the ending of a great story …
