WARNING TO READERS:

The Author of This Book is Kind of Crazy, Kind of Delusional, and All Kinds of Hilarious

Whether she’s driving a limo for former Family Ties star Justine Bateman, dancing in the dark for a rarely seen Bob Dylan music video, or stalking a bachelor reject from TV’s Love Connection, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is kind of a big deal—at least in her own mind. Smart, screwy, and scathingly funny, her tell-all essays capture every cringe-worthy moment of her kind-of famous life. From bombing as a stand-up comic for born-again Christians, to winging it as a singing waitress in an Italian restaurant, to posting open letters to Angelina Jolie and David Hasselhoff, this unstoppable L.A. transplant refuses to give up on her dreams—no matter how ill-advised—and shows us a side of Hollywood better kept hidden. When it comes to funny women—unplugged and unleashed—they don’t get any wilder than Stefanie Wilder-Taylor. . . .

Praise For I'm Kind of a Big Deal

“Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is twisted and wrong and absolutely hysterical. But on top of impeccably timed punch-lines and sly social commentary, I’m Kind of a Big Deal contains the kind of heart and self-awareness that makes for a truly satisfying read. Unless you hate fun, buy this book.”

New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster

"Bursting with hysterical, wildly perceptive musings about life, family, and some of the crazy choices we make along the way. The perfect blend of sassy and bittersweet."

—Amy Hatvany, author of Best Kept Secret
