How Humor Can Help You Control Your Life

Amy Lyle

Amy Lyle is a humorist who grew up in Marietta, Ohio, which is in the heart of Appalachia and known for a population that is partial to moonshine and prone to acts of violence. She has penned two Amazon Humor & Entertainment best-sellers, The Book Of Failures and We’re All A Mess, It’s OK, and is the writer and co-host of the popular talk show, “In The Burbs.

Amy felt helpless in many stages of her career in the entertainment business. One day she had a contract - the next day.....nothing. The cycle kept repeating itself.

Multiply that along with the frustrations of rewriting things more often than she could count. She hated the feeling of being out of control.

Don't miss her interview - she shares how she turned those failures into success and be guaranteed of a good laugh:

You will appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy's debacles including: I Was Not Talking To You, where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her coat belt was dragging on the freeway.

And In The Neighborhood, where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population. You will relish the chapters entitled Calls From Sharon, where Amy's best friend rants about her kids not getting a fair shot because public schools are 'so political. Enjoy I'm Going to Kill You, where Amy compares her lack of sleep from her husband's snoring to the tactics CIA agents use to extract secrets from POW's. 

Feel 20-32% better about your own life after reading Getting Divorced Sucks, where 911 was called after Amy had an adverse reaction from taking Xanax.

The book has been featured on the popular morning show Atlanta and Company, NPR, LA Talk Radio, What Women Want Radio Show, Just4Fun Radio, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Points North Magazine, My Forsyth Magazine, Scoop OTP, Northside Woman and multiple blogs.
