Synopsis: Saturday morning coffee sessions are never going to be the same. . . .

Sydney marketing exec Sophie presumed "making sacrifices for your children" meant giving up Bloody Marys and champagne for nine months. When she thought about it, that is. . . . But then two blue lines appear on her pregnancy test. How does a baby fit in with a hectic job, a chaotic social life, and the absence of Max, the Y chromosome in the equation, who has moved to San Francisco?

Support and dubious advice are provided by an unlikely group that gathers for a weekly coffee get-together at the King Street Cafe. With Debbie the glamorous man-eater, Andrew the fitness junkie, Anna the disaster-prone doctor, and Karen the statistically improbable happily married mother of three, Sophie discovers the ups and downs of motherhood. And when an unexpected business venture and a new man appear on the scene, it appears that just maybe there is life after a baby.

Written by two sisters who live on different continents, From Here to Maternity is a novel that tackles the balancing of motherhood, romance, and a career, while managing to be seriously funny.

From the Back Cover: International Praise for From Here to Maternity

"Funny yet poignant. . . . A brilliant read." ---She Said (Australia)

"Combine an episode of Friends with a meeting of new mums who have lots of baby stories and you have From Here to Maternity. . . . Entertaining . . . Sophie and Max are such real characters that you can't help but care about them and how they deal with life's hiccups."
---Australian Booksellers & Publishers

"If you're a single new mother, and you want a book that will hold up a mirror to your life, then From Here to Maternity is for you . . . whether, as a single new mother, you'll be able to find time to read it is another matter!" ---Asian Review of Books

"Funny, well written, and infused with warmth." ---The Australian Women's Weekly

"Sister writers Kris Webb and Kathy Watson have done well. From Here to Maternity is a lovely, fluent narrative. What's more, when it's funny, it is outrageously, belly-laugh funny."
---The Advertiser, four stars (Australia)

"Tackling confusion, rejection, and resilience, this novel is an enlightening and funny story of a mother who learns to love and treasure the tiny thing she was at first petrified of."
---The Examiner (Australia)

"Filled with wry insight, From Here to Maternity is about the search for balance."
---Gold Coast Bulletin (Australia)
