South of Happily achieves that rare balance of humor and pathos. Anderson's protagonist Katy Kiss deals with serious issues but with an off-kilter worldview that will make you laugh out loud. I can't wait to read more of Katy's adventures in adulting.

-George Weinstein, author of Hardscrabble Road, Aftermath, and other novels.

South of Happily is that book. The one you’ll talk about until your friends finally read it too; and then you’ll talk about it some more, together. Funny, sad, smart, and profound: it’s a tale of what it means to accept your family for who they really are. Anderson keeps us turning pages, unable to put the book down until the end. And then you miss the star, Katy Kiss. You wish she was real, that she lived nearby so you could meet her for coffee and find out what happened after all that.

-KJ Fieler,  author of Shadow Runner

Anderson has written a book that will have you nodding your head at the relatability of the characters one moment and laughing out loud the next, as Katy Kiss navigates the complex waters of family. If you enjoy a read with lots of heart and humor, South of Happily delivers.

-Kim Conrey, author of Stealing Ares

Gaby Anderson is a first generation Hungarian-Canadian, born in Montreal, Quebec. When she was a year old, her family moved to New Jersey, then Paris, back to Canada, and finally to the U.S. where she's lived ever since.

She's married to one of her best friends from college, has two amazing daughters, and many (many) animals from the local shelters.  

Her first memory of writing is from elementary school. After getting into a fight with a friend, she composed a story about turning her into a potato. Eventually the two made up, but the spark was lit, and a writer was born. 

After college, her dad read a short story she'd written.

His response was, "You're no Shakespeare, but keep going."

So she did.

Gaby has worked in the restaurant industry, commercial and group travel, private aviation, and pharmaceutical instrumentation. She currently works in behavioral health management. 

Her husband calls her a Renaissance Woman with mad-skills.

This means she can catch a softball with one hand while holding a giant turkey leg with the other.
