A Little Bit of Ivey

( 4 )

Overview

Call me Ivey Mae.

I have been interested in boys since I realized they weren't girls. Literally. After a tonsillectomy at age five, my first comment was, "The doctor is cute." When I was eighteen my dad started calling me Will Rogers after the actor who infamously stated that he'd never met a man he didn't like. My mother has always wondered what is wrong with me, but the answer is right in her mirror.

Overview

Call me Ivey Mae.

I have been interested in boys since I realized they weren't girls. Literally. After a tonsillectomy at age five, my first comment was, "The doctor is cute." When I was eighteen my dad started calling me Will Rogers after the actor who infamously stated that he'd never met a man he didn't like. My mother has always wondered what is wrong with me, but the answer is right in her mirror.

As a blossoming novelist, I let my southern roots color the world around me. My books grapple with my alter ego and the romantic dalliances with her dashingly handsome muse.

But in reality, I am staying married-this time-living with my husband, our 6 children, and 30 pets-and no, we don't live on a farm, but smack dab in suburbia. My husband thinks rabbits and guinea pigs are family and shouldn't be separated. But after 22 baby, inbred rodents, I said, "Family, my rear end!" and separated the boys and girls.

My dear mother is now a widow and lives next door. And although she is lonely, she is thoroughly enjoying her seat in the I-am-old-and-can-do-what-I-want boat. She's the one using a shower cap instead of an umbrella and bright-colored laundry baskets instead of a suitcase. Oh, and as it turns out, she doesn't really like me or animals. I know, hilarious.

You can't make this stuff up, although Mother would probably tell you that I do. Our lives would make for a train-wreck type entertaining genuine reality show. But our commotion would just run off the TV crew, so-for now-my stories will have to do.

    I started this book on a vacation trip and once I read the first page, I couldn't put it down. It was funny, light and easy to read. I found myself relating to so many of Ivey Mae's situations and stories. Can't wait for her next book to come out!

    This book made me laugh out loud.  Having lived in the same area growing up there are things she wrote that I felt could have been me. I had people at the doctors office copying down the title and author so they could see what was so funny. I can not wait to read her next book.  I am going to buy several for gifts knowing my friends will laugh as hard as I did.

    I read this book in a day and laughed the entire time. This is by far one of the funniest books I have read. I lifted my spirits because I felt each and every chapter and I could close my eyes and picture everything she wrote. I grew up in the same area and I can tell you-she is SPOT ON with her writings. Pg 17-5th paragraph-YEP-something I would tell my child--LOL--Chapter 31-now I have done this before-If you want to know what these pages say-YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK--I can not wait for her new book to come out this summer. Well done Lorelei.
