View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In Author/Blogger Katie Kolberg Memmel's "Silly Stories and Sentimental Stuff," she has openly extended to her readers a combination of her good humor and her open heart. After receiving countless comments of encouragement and positivity about her first book, "Five Fingers, Ten Toes - A Mother's Story of Raising a Child Born with a Limb Difference," Katie still possessed many random thoughts that floated through her mind, any time, day or night. Her son encouraged her to start a blog, so in January of 2013, "Katie's View" was born. Her blog's readers told her they enjoyed her take on life - the good, the sad, and the (sometimes) ugly, which inspired her to share some of her random work through this book. "Silly Stories and Sentimental Stuff" is a compilation of short essays and other works of creative writing. Its main themes include going back to school as an adult, raising her children to an empty-nest stage, her ever-present love of family, and random events that happen in everyday, walking-around life. It is Katie's hope that by reading and sharing in her own "Silly Stories and Sentimental Stuff," that you, dear reader, will find yourself somewhere in its telling, and possibly not feel so alone out there in this crazy world. Happy Reading!

Katie says that writing "Five Fingers" was a project of her deepest love for her family. In January of 2013, Katie started writing her blog, "Katie's View."
