About the author:
This leaves me time to figure out who I am and what I want in my life. Things I should have figured out in my early 20s around diaper changes and middle of the night feedings. But who could think straight back then? We were all lucky to make it through alive.
What inspired you to write your book?
I was inspired to create a story with a bit of a twist as well as humor and witty dialog. I have a passion for quirky and had to incorporate those qualities in the book.
Here is a short sample from the book:
My thoughts, as I stomped to work, were not comfortable. I envisioned taking a pair of scissors to his favorite football jersey. My vivid imagination helped with my paintings. That same imagination supplied a detailed picture of scissors slashing through the number on his favorite football shirt as I cut it into thin strips of cloth confetti.
I’ll admit I was slightly disturbed by how quickly the violent image flooded my mind, but it wasn’t like I would ever take scissors to his jersey.
That would dull the scissors.
What could he possibly have done to incur my scissor-producing, violent imagination? He stepped on Sadie. Accidents happened. I understood that. I’d almost stepped on Sadie myself. But, he stepped on her and wouldn’t apologize. He didn’t have to squat down at floor level to apologize face-to-face with the cat, but an out loud ‘oops sorry’ to the general, cat-loving public (me) would have been appreciated.
On top of that, he had the nerve to look offended when I asked him to apologize. It started an argument between us. Can you beat that? He actually gave off the impression that he doesn’t like my cat, and that he never had. That changed the whole aura of our relationship. It took away half the reason I liked him.
