My ninth book, Love, Look Away, was published on October 10, 2019. Set in the same town where Molly Hacker lives, Love, Look Away tells the story of Sage Gordon, the owner of a metaphysical gift shop, Sage Earth Gifts, who has been so hurt by love, she’s asked it to look away. (But does Love ever really listen?)

While this new romantic comedy is not a sequel to Molly Hacker Is Too Picky!, Molly and friends (and enemies) are supporting characters in the new book.

Love, Look Away is available on in both Kindle and paperback. You can find it here.

Note from the Author, Lisette Brodey April 25, 2016

Hi, Friends!

Welcome! This site is dedicated to my romantic comedy, Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! Snarky, over-analytical, and fun-loving Molly, a 32-year-old reporter, is looking for true love and she refuses to settle for Mr. Wrong.

(Click on the Synopsis link to learn more. To read Chapter 1, just click on the Excerpt link.)

For information on all nine of my books, please visit my author website or About The Author on this site. In addition to posting blogs and guest blogs there (at Lisette’s Writers’ Chateau), I frequently interview my fabulous fellow authors, both indie and mainstream.

And now, I’m thrilled to present the new cover for Molly Hacker Is Too Picky!, illustrated by artist Charles M. Roth.


Some of you have been here before, perhaps to check out Molly’s Monday blogs (which ran regularly from February through October 2011) or to read the interviews with her creative peers. Whether you have been a regular visitor or are brand new to this site, welcome. Thank you for coming!

You can purchase the paperback or Kindle edition of Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! on and you if you’re a member of Kindle Unlimited, you can read the book for free.

It was been a long and interesting road blogging as the main character of a novel. Molly’s blogs reveal much about crazy life that’s not in the novel.

Before I go, I want to share a bit of nostalgia with you. When the first edition of Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! was first published, Molly insisted on producing a rap video about her life. Want to see it? Just look below.

Best wishes to all!


And now, here’s Molly: (This video was done with the original cover)

Hey, cool peeps, my name is Molly Hacker,
A hardworking woman; I ain’t never been a slacker.
I’ve always been choosy, people call me picky,
Accepting second best is unacceptable and icky.

I work as a reporter for the Swansea Herald
Writing ‘bout the town, and the world so very periled.
In addition to my stories, I write obituaries,
One more crazy task to add to all my worries.

Well, I love designer labels, and super fab shoes,
I own not one but three pairs of Jimmy Choos.
I live in a town pop-u-lated by the wealthy,
Peeps that overtan till they’re toasted and unhealthy.

My least fave person in this quaint and charming burb,
Is Naomi Hall-Benchley, who is headin’ for da curb.
This she-devil thinks herself a sassy charm-ah
With no freakin’ clue, there’s a thing they call karma.
Enough about that woman, she’s enough to make you gag,
Can’t wait for the day she’s a used-up toothless hag.

If you’re still listenin’, then I’ll tell you ‘bout my life
And why I’m so picky ‘bout the man to call me “wife.”
No point in being married, just to be some dude’s missus,
I’d rather have a dog that would give me sloppy kisses.
I’m searching for true love, complete, and enduring
A man who’s freakin’ funny, ‘cause life sux when it is boring.
So, yeah, I’m Picky Molly, got my pedal to the metal,
And no freakin’ way, this girl is gonna settle.

Yours in pickiness,
