"Meghann Foye was interviewed on "The TODAY Show" and "The View "regarding her new book" Meternity.

"A fresh, contemporary take on love and work, marriage and motherhood, Meternity is guaranteed to surprise and delight " Emily Giffin, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Something Borrowed" and "First Comes Love"

Like everyone in New York media, editor Liz Buckley runs on cupcakes, caffeine and cocktails. But at thirty-one, she's plateaued at "Paddy Cakes," a glossy baby magazine that flogs thousand-dollar strollers to entitled, hypercompetitive spawn-havers.

Liz has spent years working a gazillion hours a week picking up the slack for coworkers with kids, and she's tired of it. So one day when her stress-related nausea is mistaken for morning sickness by her bosses boom Liz is promoted to the mommy track. She decides to run with it and plans to use her paid time off to figure out her life: work, love and otherwise. It'll be her "meternity" leave.

By day, Liz rocks a foam-rubber belly under fab maternity outfits. By night, she dumps the bump for karaoke nights and boozy dinners out. But how long can she keep up her charade and hide it from the guy who might just be The One?

As her "due date" approaches, Liz is exhausted and exhilarated by the ruse, the guilt and the feelings brought on by a totally fictional belly-tenant about happiness, success, family and the nature of love."

At age 31, Liz Buckley has already accomplished three of her goals: living in New York, being an editor at a magazine, and learning French, which she never uses. But she’s exhausted from the pressure of her Upper East Side nemesis, Alix Stephenson: her boss at baby magazine Paddy Cakes, who has kept her from getting to the other 17 goals—which include meeting a PH (potential husband), getting married, and having kids. So when a mix-up involving a pair of comfortable maternity jeans leads Alix to believe Liz is pregnant, she decides to go with it. After all, it seems like “having a child is really the only excuse a woman can use to work regular hours or leave early.” With the help of her friends and progressively bigger memory-foam bumps, Liz plans on taking a “meternity” leave—some time off to figure out what she wants. In the midst of juggling this lie and questioning her life, she meets Ryan Murphy, who just might be the PH she’s looking for. Readers will be turning the pages and rooting for Liz, knowing that even though no baby is coming out, the truth eventually will. Agent: Emma Parry, Janklow & Nesbit Associates. (May)
