About the Author:

Dr Samantha Payne received her Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Colorado in 1973. She later did post graduate work at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia and at the University of Nevada, Reno.As far back as her early teens, Dr. Payne noted the large number of adults as well as peers who either stood up for themselves inappropriately or did not stand up for themselves at all. At seventeen she seriously considered opening a business called BITCH INCORPORATED, hiring out to do other peoples bitching for them while, at the same time, demonstrating how to bitch appropriately.Throughout undergraduate and graduate school, and during her many years working as a psychologist, Dr. Payne continued to observe the same, disturbing pattern. Finding that many of her clients did not know how to stand up for themselves appropriately was not surprising. These folks were in therapy because they needed and wanted help. However, observing the same problem among friends, acquaintances and co-workers, of all ages and both sexes, in the general population was of grave concern. Many of them did not comprehend the extent to which their inability to stand up for themselves appropriately was playing havoc with their lives. Those who did had no idea how to solve this problem.When she retired, Dr. Payne was determined to write a book about this problem, a book that would be applicable to women, men and teens, a book that would be fun to read and hopefully would make learning easy. BITCH INCORPORATED: How to Bitch Appropriately Without Being Bitchy is this book. Dr. Payne currently lives on the Big Island of Hawaii with her husband of 36 years.
