Joni B. Cole
Author of "Water Cooler Diaries"
Author Joni B. Cole says that her "This Day in the Life" book series was born out of "self pity, curiosity, and a need to connect." Inspired to find out how other women coped with their lives, Cole asked participants to keep "day diaries" chronicalling a single day in their hectic lives. Her most recent book -- Water Cooler Diaries: Women across America Share Their Day at Work (Da Capo Lifelong Books, 2008) -- is the third in the series, and focuses on women in their workplaces.
