Debbie Weiss

I grew up, and still live, in the San Francisco Bay area where I was a practicing lawyer for over ten years, which gives my writing a nice tone of bitterness.   I was Ladywriter99 on J-Date, OK Cupid, Plenty of Fish and Tinder where I got to enjoy the popularity I missed out on in high school.

I am writing a memoir and anti-advice manual about widowhood following my husband’s death from cancer in April 2013.  It tackles the question of widow’s entropy: how did the appliances know my husband had died so they could all break down at once?    I write about my dating, and other, misadventures at www.thehungoverwidow. com.   My blog post has been featured on, the site for the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop.
