While Katherine Black is the author of this book and other upcoming books, the credit should go to the concept holder: Finn W. Contini. While at a friend's Christmas party in 1996, he remarked to two women how he had recently read John Gray's Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. One of the women pulled him and a friend of hers aside and commented that they should all write a book like John Gray's book, have it become a bestseller, and then quit their jobs and retire. Without any hesitation, he quipped that those two women should write a parody of that book and call it "Men are really from Uranus." The women liked the idea, but neither of them could write parody or were willing to make fools of themselves trying, so they urged Mr. Contini, a gifted humorist, to write the book himself, from the perspective of a woman. Unfortunately, he was unable to accomplish that task, so he enlisted the help of his friend Katherine Black, and together they wrote and published Women May Be from Venus, But Men are Really from Uranus under Katherine Black's name, with Mr. Contini holding the copyright.
