Vicki Iovine

Vicki Iovine is the happy and chronically overwhelmed mother of four children. (Five if you count her husband, and what wife doesn't?) Along with being a mother, Iovine is the celebrated author of the highly successful Girlfriends Guide series that immediately found its niche with the hip and innovative "Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy," which has been reprinted 41 times and translated into twelve languages. It was followed by the equally beloved, Girlfriends' Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood," and, keeping up with Vicki's own life experience, "Girlfriends' Guide to Toddlers," was published just in the nick of time for those Girlfriends on Vicki's reproductive timeline. To offer her no-holds-barred stories of women trying to reenter the real world of careers, compromises and, of course, love and sex after the kids were in school or daycare for at least four hours a day, "The Girlfriends' Guide to Getting Your Groove Back," was the fourth in the series.
