Synopsis: It's Your Fault is Wendy's eight year, sometimes humorous, journey in search of a cure to back pain caused by an exercise class injury. The author takes the reader on a wild ride through the Bay Area mainstream medical community, trying epidurals, physical therapy and other procedures, When her pain doesn't improve, she moves on to the universe of the alternative healing world with Interconnection Bodywork, a proselytizing Jewish yoga teacher, French maritime pine bark and more. Meanwhile, her teenage son is using the trunk of his car as a storage unit for strawberry -flavored vodka, sneaking out of the house and night and getting caught with smoking paraphernalia on Earth Day. As Wendy's desperation mounts, she discovers a tool that teaches her to trust her own instincts and learns that trying to find a solution often aggravates the problem. Her new found awareness opens the door as she learns how to deal with back pain and embrace her family.

Review: "Wendy Coblentz writes about her chronic pain with great imagery .... her sense of humor makes [the] medicine go down easier."
-- Jennette Fulda, author of Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn't Go Away

"In her fresh and witty It's Your Fault [Coblentz] provides [a laugh and a skewed sense of reality]. Discover the Zen of Whatever..."
--Cynthia Toussaint, author of Battle for Grace: A Memoir of Pain, Redemption and Impossible Love

"[It's Your Fault] tells a story of a whole person ... Anyone navigating the perplexing, never-ending maze of traditional and 'alternative'medicine for pain relief will relate to the author's frustrations and wryobservations, and be inspired by her hard-gained wisdom."
-- Paula Kamen, author of All in My Head: An Epic Quest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable, and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache

"Wendy ... perfectly illustrates the importance of working with capable physicians and therapists, while illuminating the difficulties of being prodded by so-called experts, tried by temperamental teenagers, and above all not trusting yourself in knowing which way to turn."
--Marsha J. Bluto, M.D., Fellow of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

"It's Your Fault resonate[s] with thousands of individuals who have searched for healing and who have experienced frustrations and hopes along the way."
--Owen M. Wolkowitz, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, UCSF School of Medicine and Director, Psychopharmacology Assessment Clinic, Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute

"Reporting that I liked Wendy Coblentz's memoir It's Your Fault only begins to do justice to her ... good-humored journey through the trials [of ] back pain."
--George I. Lister, Director, Northern California Center for the Alexander Technique
