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. 

Recent research about women’s penchant for hiding the “Whole Truth” gave birth to her book, What She’s Not Telling You (Greenleaf Book Group, 2010), with a new way of listening to gain real verses reflex answers.

And Time Off for Good Behavior was Mary Lou’s call to women to recognize “Aha” moments in order to redesign purposeful lives. This topic is helpful for both HR and management professionals trying to retain critical talent.

Mary Lou Quinlan has also written features for Real Simple, O, the Oprah magazine, Redbook, Good Housekeeping and Marie Claire. She also wrote a monthly career column, “Quinlan & Answers” for MORE.

Her newest book, The God Box: Sharing my mother’s gift of faith, love and letting go, is Mary Lou’s most personal book to date. This story of the bond between a mother and a daughter and the lasting gifts of family may become the favorite keepsake memoir of women everywhere. In addition, Mary Lou has written a one woman, one act play to accompany the book.

She currently blogs for the Huffington Post.com, SheKnows.com (regarding her mother’s relationship advice), Belief.net with more guest blogging contributions to come.
