Can't Pay My Rent

A non fiction book by

Why can't you pay the rent?

The monthly question most apartment managers find themselves asking at least a handful of tenants. In this hilarious piece, Cambria Clyne, the sassy heroine of For Rent, is presented with 31 real-life excuses for not paying the rent. Everything from "my identity was stolen" to "I needed drinking money for the weekend" is offered as a so-called reasonable attempt to get out of forking over the cash (or unsigned money order or check that will surely bounce).

Now the question is: How will Cambria get them all to pay up?

Author Interview

What was your inspiration to write The Apartment Manager Series? All the apartment managers I've met agree on one thing - someone needs to write a book about this bizarre industry! So I thought, why not me? As a former on-site apartment manager and longtime blogger at The Apartment Manager's Blog, I have a lot of inspiration right at my fingertips. So much so, this had to be a series.

It seems these books could fit into several genres. How would you categorize them? To me, a good book has a bit of mystery, a dose of romance, a twist, and a whole lot of humor. So I applied this formula to For Rent: humor, mystery and romance... I think it could easily fit into chick lit, romantic comedy, and even a cozy mystery.

What sets Cambria apart, and how is her story different from other romantic comedies? Cambria is a feisty single mom determined to do right by her daughter. She's smart, witty, awkward, humble and possibly too nosy for her own good. Even when she's thrust into strange and dangerous situations, she manages to hold her own. She's not easily defeated, even when everything (and everyone) says she should be. Cambria isn't out to find love (this isn't really a romance story, though the handyman is pretty cute), but she wouldn't be opposed to it finding her. She's really out to start a new job and establish a career for herself in an industry that is deceptively difficult. She fumbles along the way, and this is what makes her relatable.

In what order should I read the books? My books are like Diet Coke and French fries - good on their own, but oh-so-good together. I would recommend the following order:

- For Rent
- For Hire
- Move-In Special (coming soon!)
- Can't Pay My Rent: A Month of Excuses (get your free ecopy by joining my mailing list:
