"What No One Tells The MOM"


"All the books, websites, TV shows or well-meaning advice in the world can never really prepare a woman for the sheer shock of new parenthood. Nor will they ever adequately convey what happens to your heart, your character and your growth as a human being. 

"Marg Stark, though, gets as close to the astonishing reality of it all as you will find on any printed page. Don't put the birth control pills away (or walk down the aisle for that matter) without reading this book first." 

   - Grayson Hurst Daughters,
Writer, Columnist, "Atlanta Magazine"


"Hot off the press to save your Mama soul:  Sure, there are many books out there about becoming a Mom or dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a Mom but I have read my fair share and nothing compares to the raw and honest view into the life of a real Mother, not to mention the 100 real mothers who gave their insight and brought this book to life.

"I actually think that Marg Stark may have covered just about every thought, feeling and question I have had since the moment I found out I was pregnant to now as I sit here with a 9 Month old baby! She has done this in a way that is not offensive, opinionated or intrusive which is refreshing to most Women who experience those exact adjectives on a daily basis during pregnancy and motherhood.

"By recognizing that Motherhood comes to women many different ways, Stark has embraces modern day family life in her realistic portrayal of the working mother, wife, partner, lover and domestic diva.

"Buy it, borrow it, do whatever you have to to get your hands on this book!

"What No One Tells The BRIDE"


"Frank, funny and intimate, What No One Tells the Bride will prepare engaged women for the realities of marriage and reassure every married woman that her marriage can work.  “It should be required reading for every bride.”

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus




“Stark is a smart advice giver.”

   Liz Smith, Syndicated Columnist, Newsday




"I was married in 1995, began freaking out as soon as people began leaving the wedding reception. I then cried on and off through our entire honeymoon and the next six months of our marriage.  If only I'd had this book to reassure me that I was going to find a way to be a whole person and married at the same time!


"This book is great because it addresses all of the changing expectations that come with getting married - you see yourself differently, your spouse sees you differently, and our culture sees you differently once you are married. That is a lot to take on and this book does it with both humor and depth.  I recommend it to all married women who want to think, laugh, cry, and stay connected to themselves-where they've been and where they are going. Thanks Marg for writing a book I am giving to all of my newly married friends!
