Welcome to Dee's Pad

My life as a writer, and as a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Here is it, my very first novel!  
Myrtle Sue Henderson and her family are probably like your normal dysfunctional family. They don't always get along, but they do love one another.

When Myrtle Sue is widowed, her mother-in-law, Hazel, moved in with her because she was kicked out of the senior apartments. There was no place else for Hazel to live. Did I mention Hazel wasn't fond of Myrtle Sue?

Hazel hits a man at church with her cane, takes money from the collection plates, and talks loud enough for everyone around her to hear, like when she says one lady's dress looks like her grandmother's wallpaper. Another lady's hair looks like a bird nest. And she isn't happy when the older man doesn't take to her.

Zack comes into Myrtle Sue's life and actually likes her wacky family. 

Presley, Myrtle Sue's oldest daughter and her two children also move in with her. Presley is trying to escape an abusive marriage. Her husband is a taxidermist who stuffs dead animals for presents. Like when he stuffs his 8-year-old daughters dead dog for her birthday present. But hey, he puts wheels on the dogs feet so she can take it for walks. What more could a child ask for? A live dog to replace the dead one? That's what a normal person would do. James is not what we'd call normal.

I hope you will consider buying the book. So far I have good reviews.
