Desperate Housewives meets Melbourne Yummy Mummies. Once a down-to-earth girl who loved her freckles as much as sailing with her carefree husband, one day Mim Woolcott wakes up to find she is keeping Prada, Louis Vuitton and numerous day spas in business and her life has descended into a merry-go-round of shopping, backstabbing and snobbery. Welcome to the world of Gucci Mamas, where every day Mim has to negotiate the Carpark Mafia and the Mothers Superior as she drops her children off at the most prestigious school in Melbourne. But in between keeping up with the Joneses - or in this case the Mason-Jacksons - cracks are starting to show in Mim's perfect life as money gets tighter and her husband works ever longer hours. If her two best friends have similar problems, Mim would never know - the Gucci Mamas are far too busy picking their outfits for the races and having manicures to notice each other's troubles. Something's got to give, and it will take a catastrophic, life-changing event to bring Mim to her senses. But will it be too late? Wryly funny and frighteningly sharply observed, with characters who are all too real, Gucci Mamas will have y

Author Biography

Cate Kendall is actually writing team Lisa Blundell and Michelle Hamer who first met as private school mums over a latte in mid-2005. As they sipped coffee and poked fun at the posh mums of the private school world it dawned on them that this topic could make a great book. The girls worked together extremely well from the first day. As the novel progressed the two created a system where Lisa would write the first 1000 words of a chapter, often using the notes created from their first brainstorming session. She would then email this 'scaffolding' to Michelle who would add another 1000 over the top of Lisa's; embellishing, polishing and when Lisa went too far - taking it just that little bit further!! As a prolific journalist, Michelle has been widely published across Australia, has been an editor at The Age, and is author of the books: "It Couldn't Happen to Me," How it Feels, and Caesarean Culture. The advertising game was Lisa's entr e into writing with several years copywriting under her belt - she also writes for The Age. The two mums each have four children. We've had at least one babe, and sometimes all eight, with us throughout this project," said Michelle, "but that's okay, we do our best work amidst chaos." Michelle and Lisa are now proud to now be publishing their third book together, Chanel Sweethearts, which is set to be another hilarious bestselling romp.
