Congratulations Lois Stern you're the featured Infinity author of the week!
After twenty years as an active educator, Lois W. Stern continued to pursue her love for writing, soon becoming co-editor of a popular Long Island web-zine. As she created and authored her column Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives, she solidified her special niche of investigative journalism and put those same talents to work while writing Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery, now in its second printing.
Having been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and chosen as one of the "50 Great Writers Your Should Be Reading," Lois followed up with her second book, Tick, Tock, Stop the Clock. – Getting Pretty on Your Lunch Hour to address the less invasive paths to beauty.
Here is a look at some of her other media coverage and articles:
Check out some of the incredible book reviews she's recieved:
“Lois Stern breaks new ground with her must-read, impressively honest treatment of the relationship between cosmetic surgery and sexuality. Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery belongs in the waiting room of every plastic surgeon's office, readily available to any woman considering plastic surgery." -Alan M. Kisner, M.D.
“Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery is stunningly frank. It dares to tred where others have not ventured. Bravo to Lois Stern. I applaud her courqge in tackling this taboo subject of the correlation between sex and cosmetic surgery.” -Denise Thomas, Pioneer Cosmetic Surgery Consultant
“Do not be misled by its title. This is a very thoughtful and insightful book, exploring the common and perhaps not so common emotions involved with the plastic surgery experience. Its very readable format presents valuable information and guidance for any woman considering cosmetic surgery.” -Leo McCafferty, M.D. Clinical Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Plastic Surgery Consultant to the Pittsburgh Steelers
From the bedroom to the boardroom, over one hundred women share refreshingly candid stories of their diverse motivations and the unexpected impacts cosmetic surgery had on their lives.
By building rapport with the over one hundred women she interviewed for this book, often delving into some of the most intimate aspects of their lives, Lois was able to uncover provocative insights into the magnetic lure of cosmetic surgery and the diverse impacts it can have on women’s lives.
Through memoir, journalism and research, the author explores provocative themes such as post-surgery sexuality, amorous feelings toward one's plastic surgeon, ambivalences, misperceptions and more. Lois adds much credibility to the text by sharing her personal experience with utter candor - then supplementing the text with her diary entries and photos.
Reaching beyond the typical tell-all book, Lois W. Stern brings the anecdotal into sharp focus by using her finely honed humor, interviews with respected professionals and cutting edge research, to deliver content as rich in entertainment as in authenticity.
