Mad Women

Is there a market for novels about women at work?

I searched on Amazon and found lots of “how to” books, guidelines, formulas for success, even a book about how men should mentor women. Studies of barriers, histories, and even “Women at Work in 21st Century European Theater” were there but not much to match the stories in Mad Men (which of course could have been called Mad Women)!

Then I came across a list of eight fiction works about women and work, some of which I had read – The Circle and The Devil Wears Prada, for example.  Are there other adventure stories of women at work?  I refuse to believe there not much interest in them, after all lots of women live those stories every day.

If you know about good work stories, let me know.  I have this blog to write about them and my new website:

I’ve never written fiction, but might try someday.
