Product Description


"Funny and poignant, it's an enjoyable read many women will relate to." (Sun)

"Brilliantly funny. This book could spark a revolution!" (Fiona Gibson, author of MUM ON THE RUN)

"A book that is so NOW where many mums are trying to get their "me" back. I wanted to shout "Yes" at every page but I was too busy laughing and nodding my head in recognition. A must read for any mother going through the mumopause." (Claire Smith AKA Ministry of Mum)

From the Back Cover

It was just a squashed grape on the kitchen floor. Hardly a reason to get upset, right?

But six years of motherhood has left Lisa Stratton feeling like a skivvy.

Every morning before she’s opened her eyes, she starts her mental inventory of jobs to do. And just like yesterday, the day before and every day since she became a mum, she’s woken up knackered.

So when her husband deliberately steps over the grape because it’s ‘her responsibility’ to run the house, it tips her over the edge.

He wasn’t always like this – they used to share everything.

Then the kids came along and he saw it as an excuse to sit back.

But this time things are going to change. Lisa has made a decision. She’s going on strike…

About the Author

Laura Kemp started writing to get out of doing a real job. A journalist for fifteen years, she turned freelance after having a baby because she couldn’t get out of the house, washed and dressed, until lunchtime at the earliest. A columnist and contributor, she regularly writes for national newspapers and magazines, and spends too much time on Twitter (@laurajanekemp). Married with a son and a neurotic cat, Laura lives in suburbia, where she starts every day vowing she’s definitely not going to drink tonight. Mums on Strike is her second novel.
