Author Info
Erma Bombeck
Erma Louise Fiste began her career writing humor for her junior high school newspaper. Upon graduating, she was a copy girl for a newspaper in her hometown of Dayton, Ohio. She attended the University of Dayton, and then went on to become a reporter for the Dayton Journal-Herald and to marry William Bombeck, a sportswriter and later a high school principal. Bombeck raised three children and pursued such activities as oven-cleaning, bedsheet-laundering, and mediating sibling rivalries until she decided that that was not enough for her. In 1964, when her youngest child started school, Bombeck began writing columns for the Kettering-Oakwood Times at a $3 per column rate. She became a best-selling author who continued to produce humorous writings on motherhood and housework over a span of three decades. In 1992, Bombeck was stricken with breast cancer and had a mastectomy; soon after, her kidneys failed. She died of complications after a kidney transplant.
"Ms. Bombeck's musings on family life are informed with hard-won wisdom and with love."
