Read full description of the books:
The Between Boyfriends Book is an honest, hilarious look at the world of dating--and not dating--that will have fans rushing back for multiple copies to press on the psychic wounds of their afflicted friends. Chupack not only puts voice to the cheerful brutality that shapes young women's love lives, but creates bonus coinages to describe instantly recognizable dating tropes, such as:
* "sexual sorbet": the first person you sleep with after a breakup to remove the taste of a bad relationship
* "lone rangered": to have had a relationship end with no goodbye, no answers, just the vague feelings you have no idea who that man was
* "premature 'we'jaculation": a common dating dysfunction where one member of the couple starts using "we" before the other is ready.

In addition, she has written humorous essays about dating and relationships for O, The Oprah Magazine (where she had her own column called “Live Your Best Love Life”), Glamour (where she had a column called “Dating Dictionary”), Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, People, Self, Real Simple, Entertainment Weekly, Slate and the New York Times.

Cindy Chupack has won three Golden Globes and two Emmys for her work as a writer/producer of ABC’s Modern Family and HBO’s Sex and the City. Several episodes she penned -- Little Bo Bleep (Modern Family) and Evolution, Attack of the 5'10" Woman, Just Say Yes, Plus One is the Loneliest Number, I Love a Charade, and Splat! (Sex and the City) -- were individually nominated for Writer's Guild and Emmy awards.
Other TV credits include Everybody Loves Raymond, Coach, and the hour-long romantic comedy anthology series Cindy created for NBC called Love Bites (all eight Love Bites episodes are available on Amazon).
Her first screenplay (the adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel, How to Be Good, with the late, great Laura Ziskin producing for Miramax) made the Black List for Hottest Unproduced Screenplays of 2008.
Cindy grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma and received a journalism degree from Northwestern University, then moved to New York City to work in advertising right out of college. She sold her first humorous essay to a women’s magazine in 1990, and the piece was spotted by a TV producer who encouraged her to pursue comedy writing, which she’s been doing ever since.
Cindy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, their daughter and their St. Bernard rescue, Tink. Tink made Cindy realize that she was, in fact, a dog person, and that "conversion" inspired her to write and direct the award-winning short film, "Whose Dog Is It Anyway?” starring Sarah Paulson.
