*The “Not Your Mother’s Book” (NYMB) humor anthologies, created by Dahlynn and Ken McKowen, feature stories written by contributors from around the world. NYMB is very different–stories are funny, irreverent and daring. You’ll NEVER READ a sad, sappy or death and dying stories in a NYMB book–EVER!

To date, there are 10 NYMB books available: On Being a Woman; On Dogs; On Being a Stupid Kid (all those baby boomer stories); On Travel; On Being a Parent; On Home Improvement; On Being a Mom; On Family; On Cats; and On Working for a Living. The McKowens are excited about the newest NYMB book, to be released in January 2015: On Sex. There will be 69 stories in that book!

    Info about the book and NYMB series

    Not Your Mother’s Book…On Cats contains 62 stories from cat lovers all over North America. It goes without saying that cats rule the nearly 300 pages of this book. Knowing their proclivity to always be in charge, they wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Series creators Dahlynn and Ken McKowen spent 10 years developing and co-authoring books for Chicken Soup for the Soul before launching their own anthology. NYMB books are fun, daring, smart and different; you’ll never find sad, sappy or death and dying stories in the series—EVER!

    To date, there are 10 books in the series, including On Travel, On Being a Stupid Kid (all those crazy things Baby Boomers did in their youth), On Home Improvement and On Being a Woman. All contributors are compensated for their stories. For those interested in submitting stories for consideration in future NYMB books, visit
