Cheryl Lavin tackles the joys and troubles of men and women who are on the front lines of relationships in the 21st century. As they share their stories, she offers both wit and compassion in advice. This is a collection of her very best columns from 2014.
Cheryl Lavin's "Tales fromTales from the Front" lets men and women share their relationship stories in their own words. Love is a battlefield, and they're the war correspondents reporting to her from the front lines of relationships in the 21st century.
With a combination of humor and compassion, Lavin's three-times-a-week column tackles the problems and joys of every single, married, divorced, separated or widowed person. Some tales are funny while some are sad. Some have happy endings and some don't. But they're always true, sometimes controversial and on-target.
Once a week, Lavin gives advice based on over 20 years of experience and thousands of readers' letters.
Lavin began "Tales From the Front" in 1985. Her work is included in "Best Newspaper Writing," published by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. She has earned numerous awards, including the Peter Lisagor and Jacob Scher awards for investigative journalism, the Herman Kogan award from the Chicago Bar Association for legal writing, and the Peter Lisagor and UPI awards for feature writing.
A native Chicagoan, Lavin now lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., with her second (and hopefully last) husband, Robert Rapp. She's saving the story of their meeting for a quick column when she's really under deadline pressure. Meanwhile, her two daughters, Shannon and Samantha, keep her supplied with tales, as do her thousands of loyal readers.
