Author Of 'I'm Kind Of A Big Deal' On Decision To Stop Drinking

She's the best selling author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay and Naptime Is the New Happy Hour. And now, in her new book I'm Kind of a Big Deal: And Other Delusions on Adequacy, mother of three, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor offers a funny and candid take on her decision to stop drinking.

Whether she's driving a limo for former Family Ties star Justine Bateman, dancing in the dark for a rarely seen Bob Dylan music video, or stalking a bachelor reject from TV's Love Connection, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is kind of a big deal--at least in her own mind.

Smart, screwy, and scathingly funny, her tell-all essays capture every cringe-worthy moment of her kind-of famous life. From bombing as a stand-up comic for born-again Christians, to winging it as a singing waitress in an Italian restaurant, to posting open letters to Angelina Jolie and David Hasselhoff, this unstoppable L.A. transplant refuses to give up on her dreams--no matter how ill-advised--and shows us a side of Hollywood better kept hidden. When it comes to funny women--unplugged and unleashed--they don't get any wilder than Stefanie Wilder-Taylor.
