“A quick and enjoyable tour of the lighter, funnier side of dementia.”  —Kirkus Reviews

 ”I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this hard! Ever!” —Pat O’Brien, Access Hollywood

When affable computer salesman Sid Straw sends an innocent letter requesting an autographed photo from his former college classmate, the popular and cultish Hollywood actress Heather Locklear (Melrose PlaceSpin City), he has no idea that his life will soon be spiraling out of control—costing his job, draining his finances, foiling his romantic designs on a co-worker, and leaving his entire world in ruins . . .

 Until he decides to fight back.

 Told through a series of one-sided correspondences with the television star, his bosses, his girlfriend, and various lawyers and PR representatives, Eat Wheaties! is a farcical look at celebrity in today’s society.

 A charming, laugh-out-loud novel (originally published as The Locklear Letters), Eat Wheaties! has been adapted for a major motion picture starring Tony Hale (VeepArrested Development), Elisha Cuthbert (24Happy Endings), Paul Walter Hauser (Da 5 Bloods, Richard Jewell), Danielle Brooks (Orange Is The New Black), Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball,  Firefly) and Sarah Chalke (ScrubsRoseanne).
