See you in DC for a reading, discussion, and signing of my memoir on addiction and motherhood, I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE.

I'd love to meet you.

— «Janelle Hanchett presents motherhood as we seldom see it: with irreverent humor, brazen honesty, deep love and loss. Her story is about finding peace right in the mess of motherhood, and that's what makes it wonderful.»―Jill Smokler, New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of a Scary Mommy

«Fiercely talented word-warrior Janelle Hanchett grabs your guts with her frank, brutally funny, and moving memoir of modern motherhood and addiction. You won't want to let go of this book.»―Ann Imig, editor of Listen to Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We're Saying Now

«Whilst we are all fighting some sort of inner battle, few of us have the honesty, humor, and heart to describe our struggle like Janelle Hanchett. Her memoir, I'm Just Happy to Be Here, is not just for those touched by addiction, but for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, which is everyone. I could not put this book down.»―Firoozeh Dumas, New York Times bestselling author of Funny in Farsi and Laughing Without an Accent

«Far from your cookie-cutter story of addiction and recovery, I'm Just Happy to Be Here: A Memoir of Renegade Mothering describes Hanchett's journey to recovery and sobriety in imperfect and unconventional ways.»―Bustle

«By turns painful and funny, [I'm Just Happy to Be Here] explores the pressures of modern motherhood while chronicling one woman's journey toward acceptance of her own limitations and imperfections. A searingly candid memoir.»―Kirkus Reviews

«Hanchett offers a startling account of her struggles with alcohol and drug addiction in this raw and riveting memoir… Readers will cheer Hanchett toward her triumphant recovery.»―Publishers Weekly

«Witty, heartbreaking, and enlightening, Hanchett's memoir will resonate with parents and nonparents alike.»―Booklist

«An inspiring message about recovery that resonates through its emphasis on the imperfect progress of life.»―Library Journal
