Publisher's Summary

Debut author, Sharon Weil, offers up a hilarious, sex-charged, romantic comedy adventure that’s “a fertile cross between Tom Robbins, Kurt Vonnegut and Mr. Toad’s Wild ride.
Can love make you brave? Hopelessly mismatched lovers, Donny and Ursula, are ignited by their mutual attraction to become unlikely heroes well beyond their imaginations or mere neurotic existences. If good sex can melt fear, and love can inspire leaps, then they’re in trouble because poor earth-loving, travel agent Ursula has never had the Big O, and cynical writer Donny’s heart is in hiding.
But, an agribusiness giant is out to own all the seeds of the world, and someone had better stop them! Could it really be these two will save the world? Find out as this story wheels and banks in eccentric glee, as love, sex, seeds and greed collide in outrageous climax. As they fumble their way to bravery, the flaws and foibles of Donny, Ursula, and their crazy rebel friends, (outlaw guerilla gardeners, belly dancing feminists, gun-crazy survivalists and mushroom messengers) are at once surprising, ridiculous, scary, and heartwarming.
The funniest book about love, sex and GMOs you’ll ever read!

Even More Fun Than Reading

A Quirky Look at Sex & Love, Seeds & Science

If you could sum up Donny and Ursula Save the World in three words, what would they be?

Hip, cool, and groovy


What was one of the most memorable moments of Donny and Ursula Save the World?

When Ursula goes to Belly Dancing class and when Donny goes to Survivalist Camp


Which character – as performed by Sharon Weil – was your favorite?

Ursula, of course. But I identify more with Sheerah because she's so spiritual...and wise, and earthy, and sensual...who wouldn't want to be her?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A fresh, new romantic comedy about Mother Nature in all her glorious elements.


Any additional comments?

Sharon Weil reminds me of Tom Robbins. She's funny and irreverent and weaves a story with a social message. Donny and Ursula is a story of now. It's spiritually and socially conscious but the book is so much fun to read you really don't want to leave this weird world Weil has created. Reading Donny and Ursula is like breathing fresh air.
