MY YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY
THE MANDY CHRONICLES, BOOK 1
Mandy Ryan’s To Do List:
Divorce lying, cheating rat bastard husband, Roger
Survive a year in a yurt
Write a book about it.
MANDY RYAN is reinventing her life by taking a sabbatical from her position as wife, mother and government documents librarian. Her children are grown. Her husband, ROGER, is lusting after another woman. She hires her friend, JULIA, to be her divorce lawyer, changes the locks on her house and goes in search of the real Mandy Ryan.
Mandy has a contract to deliver a book length manuscript on living the primitive life for a year in a yurt when she has never written a book, gone camping, or lived more than six blocks from a Starbucks.
For optimistic Mandy, not a problem.
For EDGAR, Mandy’s New York editor, who wants her book to be about skinning rabbits and shooting deer, preferably with a bow and arrow, more negotiation is required.
Mandy survives her year, but has a few loose ends to tie up before she can live happily ever after:
Who keeps leaving moccasin prints outside her yurt?,
How can she satisfy Editor Edgar’s blood lust without killing small furry creatures?
Why does that plane fly over her home when the moon is full?
Why does HENRY, the nephew of Mandy’s friend HANNAH PETERS, hate her?
Mandy embraces the culture shock of life in the country complete with flash floods and rattlesnakes, and learns far more than she bargained for or can put in her book.
