After enduring a violent childhood, Cammie O’Malley has built a safe, happy life with her young family. But when her mother, Delos, develops dementia and Cammie moves her in, dark memories from her past come back to haunt her.
Relying on her resilient spirit and wry humor, Cammie works to rise above her past while still caring for her mother. But then Bobby Joe McAllister, Delos’ disgusting boyfriend arrives from Florida and whisks Delos away to parts unknown.
While the family searches frantically for Delos, Cammie also must cope with her own overdeveloped sense of responsibility for her mother, and the knowledge that nothing in her life will ever change until she does.
Targeted Age Group:: 30 – 65
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to encourage other caretakers of the elderly, and I wanted to make people laugh. Women, especially caretakers, can become so overwhelmed with their duties that they fail to see the joy and humor in every day moments.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I based the title character, Cammie, on myself. Many of the other characters are composites of people I have known.
I wasn’t born codependent. From what my parents told me I was just like any average baby, the second-born of four girls in a nice Catholic family.
