See Mommy Run by Laura Kennedy
Life in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California is a soap opera. Kim and Molly skip school, smoke pot, and call each other bitch, while Mike loan sharks by day and guzzles Coors by night. Eventually a line is drawn across the matted shag carpet when Mike sides with the girls.
Pushed to her limit when Kim's truancy draws the attention of the State Attorney's Office, Margie flees to San Francisco.
Author Bio: From her website: "I'm an author living on the West Coast of Florida. I grew up in South Minneapolis where my mother was a romance writer who helped support my brother and me by selling two stories a month for over thirty years. You can see why by the time I was in kindergarten, I knew I wanted to be a writer.
By the time I was twenty-two, I was living in Southern California, was married, had a baby, and was flat broke, the perfect Petri dish for the start of a writing career. Encouraged by my mother's success, I borrowed her portable typewriter and plunked down to concoct my first story that I sold for the staggering sum of $225.
Currently, my Chick Lit novel See Mommy Run is for sale as an e-book on Amazon. Set in California in 1980, it's the saga of thirty-nine-year-old Margie McDougal who flees the San Fernando Valley from teen daughters who won't mind, a husband who doesn't care, and a soul-crushing job. In San Francisco she discovers a new job, exciting friends and a sexy, young lover, trading unhappiness for overwhelming guilt." Learn more on her website and follow her on Twitter.
