Product description

Product Description

Plump, unattractive, and underachieving, Sharon Mathers isn't the kind of girl usually found in glossy women's magazines. She is the kind of girl found reading them, usually while drinking beer in the backroom of her friend's double-wide trailer/beauty parlor. Born to a single mother in a small town where family ties run “deep enough to be genetically suspect,” Sharon grew up on the social fringe. Unfortunately, marrying a hometown boy and “by extension, almost half of the town,” didn't help. Sharon's longing for deep and authentic ties of kinship takes her farther and farther from her Alabama home town in search of a real “home.” Her journey leads her to the sweaty, boozy, sexy streets of the French Quarter and on to the golden prairies of Oklahoma where silver fighter jets pierce a perfect blue sky. Passing through the surreal, nightmarish aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, she ultimately discovers a place of acceptance she never expected.

About the Author

Michele Feltman Strider originally became a writer because of her deep appreciation for near rhyme. After publishing her first book "Homecoming: A Novella," Michele quickly realized that becoming a novelist not only exempted her from real work, but gave her the opportunity to write third person book jacket biographies about herself. Michele grew up largely in the southern US where she graduated from the University of South Alabama with a degree in, of all of the well considered majors, Theater. Michele currently lives in the outrageously pleasant San Francisco Bay Area with her devoted and uxorious husband Jim and two semi-rotten cats. In addition to her work as a novelist, Michele is also an active blogger, tweeter, and chocolate chip cookie eater.
