I rode with Penny to the scribing clinic and shared stories. I was awed that Penny, a member living in Ellensburg, found time to author a book! So I took the opportunity to google her story and learned the following! Way to Go Penny!
Memories of a Female Trucker, published this February, is written from the cab of an eighteen-wheeler where Penny lived for five-years. The gist of the book takes place within the schism of the lush life of the 1950’s and the rebellion of the 60’s. It uses the grid of the interstate driving to deftly weave a collage of time and place. It is nightmare, visitation and new meanings where the past is squarely placed in the rearview mirror while the highway is always moving forward. This is a story of a woman and a man as well as of a mother and a daughter in which the intellectual brutality is always offset with the juxtaposition fo nature. It is a journey of healing and success. Available from amazon kindle… and just a side note, Penny has received 5 out of 5 stars for this story! I can’t wait to read this!
