Best-Selling Author Christine K. Clifford Debuts Two New Books

Clifford Infuses Humor Into Two Tough Situations: Breast Cancer and Divorce

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Christine K. Clifford, a Minneapolis-based best-selling author who has written eight books including two award-winning books about cancer, has released two new books with Anshan, an independent UK publisher.

The Clue Phone's Ringing...It's For You! Healing Humor for Women Divorcing relates poignant but funny divorce stories about Clifford's second divorce. "The clue phone is the phone inside your head that should set alarm bells ringing when something isn't quite right about a man you're involved with," Clifford said.

The Clue Phone's Ringing offers top 10 tips for "divorcing divas," 10 things you should never say to someone going through divorce and suggestions on how to say things differently. Cartoons and quips on how to be a "divorcing diva" offer divorce humor for women who are currently contemplating or going through a divorce.

Laugh 'Til It Heals: Notes from the World's Funniest Cancer Mailbox is a compilation of funny breast cancer stories from women who sent letters to The Cancer Club®. The book also provides practical information on how to support someone who has cancer, expert advice on beneficial nutrition and resources created by cancer patients worldwide.

Clifford founded The Cancer Club® in 1995 after her own battle with breast cancer. The Cancer Club offers hope and support to cancer patients, their families and friends through the healing power of humor.

"Managing cancer is serious business," Clifford said. "Laughter has many therapeutic side effects. Laughter and humor can help you get past the unpleasant, manage the unbearable and cope with the unexpected."

Both books contain cartoons by Jack Lindstrom designed to elicit laugh-out-loud responses from readers.

The Clue Phone's Ringing and Laugh 'Til It Heals are both available in paperback for $14.95 and can be ordered by visiting http://www.anshan.co.uk/christineclifford.
