Cissy Norton runs into a passel of peckerheads in the fictional east Texas town of Sweetbriar. The first: husband, Bobby Ray Riggs. Cissy gains fame as The Pecker Painter for “Divorce Dreams: Offing Jerk.” After 16 years, she reconnects with best friend LaWanda’s kid brother, Randy. But his jealousy over her subject matter—nude men—threatens to derail their happy ending, underscoring a key theme: People change.
Cissy Norton finds a passel of peckerheads in the fictional east Texas town of Sweetbriar. After 10 years of marriage to Bobby Ray Riggs, Cissy finds love with Randy Wilkerson, best friend LaWanda's kid brother. But Cissy's afraid to leave her drunken, whoring, ornery sumbitch husband. Peckerheads spans 26 years of Cissy's life. Along the way, she finds that sex--even great sex--is no replacement for love. Reuniting with Randy is a problem 'cause he's jealous of Cissy's artistic subject matter--nude men.
About the author
Erin Jay Lachlan is the altered ego of a Florida writer with Texas ties: She grew up in Corpus Christi*, partied through four years of college in Nacogdoches and served a five-year sentence in San Antonio as an army officer. Although she’s been out of the Lone Star State for a number of dog years, she considers herself a recovering Texan. Erin Jay has no work to her credit, but her doppelganger has the following fiction credits: three published novels; winner of the First Annual Florida Noir Festival noir script competition; dual finalist in a Writers’ League of Texas contest in the categories of Mystery and Young Adult; winner of an honorable mention in a WOW! Women on Writing contest for flash fiction (and winner of the first “Gulf Coast Idol” award at a Gulf Coast Writers conference for the piece). She also has several nonfiction writing/editing credits and photos and has served as a panelist and judge for Gulf Coast Writers conferences in Panama City. *This is a downright lie: The author still has not grown up. And refuses to. Ever.
