Verges tackles the serious issues of menopause and beyond with a light heart in her collection of stories and essays “Menopause Ain’t No Joke.”
She turned her blog posts into a book in three months with stories ranging from aboard an airplane to a dentist’s office.
Verges lives by the motto “A laugh a day, keeps stress at bay” and keeps a hoola hoop in her office.
“I wish I had written more essays,” she said.
Once, she found mouse poop in her car while reaching for a treat.
“There was no shingle on my hood that said, ‘Welcome, we’ll leave the light on for you.”
