Best friends Maeve, Kim and Susan all came of age in the 1970's during the height of the feminist movement. Now, in their forties, these three contemporary, modern women lean on and support each other as they deal with office politics, career issues, love, motherhood and relationships.
"Between Friends" takes a humorous and contemporary look at the lives of these three women in all their angst-driven, stress-filled, caffeinated glory. Since its debut in 1994, it has cemented a relationship with female readers in more than 120 newspapers.
Here's what some of them have to say:
"My Seattle Times carrier is running two hours behind this evening, so I'm going through withdrawal."
"I continually look forward to seeing glimpses of my own life in your work. Your strips are often stuck on the fridge or pinned to my office bulletin board."
"Wanted to let you know that my mother and I LOVE your strip in today's Los Angeles Daily News...we have made every one of those statements ourselves!"
"This is a big 'thank you' from every mother who ever had to go through a store with a crying child!!...I have gotten such a kick out of this week's strips."
"Your sketches are excellent; the expressions come out so well in a few brush strokes, that I am amazed." (a reader from India)
