Mary Lou Quinlan wrote the book (literally) on marketing to women when she launched Just Ask a Woman in 2003, published by John Wiley &Sons. She followed that with Time Off for Good Behavior to recognize women’s “Aha” moments in order to redesign purposeful lives. Her recent research unveiling women’s penchant for hiding the “Whole Truth” gave birth to What She’s Not Telling You (Greenleaf Book Group, 2010), with a new way of listening to gain Whole Truth VS Half Truth answers.
Her newest book, The God Box: Sharing my mother’s gift of faith, love and letting go, hit the New York Times bestseller list in just three weeks. This story of the bond between a mother and a daughter and the very human struggle of learning to let go is becoming the favorite keepsake memoir of women everywhere.The book gave birth to a one woman play, a mobile app and a vibrant community and force for good, The God Box Project.com. Mary Lou Quinlan has also written features for Real Simple, O, the Oprah magazine, Redbook, Good Housekeeping and Marie Claire. For two years, she also wrote a monthly career column, “Quinlan & Answers” for MORE magazine.
She has blogged for the Huffington Post.com, SheKnows.com, Belief.net, Motherlode in The New York Times, and The Three Tomatoes.
