Overview

**Recipient of a 2008 award from the Golden Crown Literary Society, the premier organization for the support and nourishment of quality lesbian literature. Butch Girls Can Fix Anything won in the category of Lesbian Debut Author. Congratulations to Paula Offutt! **

Kelly Walker is known around town as the Fix-it Lady who can repair just about anything. That's true, except for the hole in her life left by the death of her lover, Anna. Her fix-it business provides the perfect hideout as she resolves other people's problems instead of focusing on her own shattered life.

Grace Owens, single mother, is determined to stand on her own two feet and make a fresh start for herself and her nine-year-old daughter, Lucy. Lucy has a goal of her own: she wants to master her math homework, and that is a hard task with a mother who doesn't understand division.

The three meet under a leaky kitchen ceiling. What each has to give, the others need. They must learn when to take risks and when to trust each other. Together, can they find the tools that will allow them to fix what most needs to be rebuilt?

Meet the Author

Raised on a small farm in east Tennessee, and having lived in New Jersey for three years, Paula Offutt (pronounced off-it) now resides in the mountains of western North Carolina. She and her partner of over sixteen years share an old house with several dogs, cats, and goldfish. Paula believes that humor is what makes the world go 'round, although love is a close second. She surrounds herself with as much of both as she can.

Paula has written non-fiction for a while. In high school, she received an award for youth journalism. In college, she worked for several years for the school newspaper and had some of her first fiction and poetry published in a university anthology.

After college, she set aside writing to face the real world. For the next sixteen years, she worked as program coordinator for a county UCP office; assistant director of a day care; laborer at a plant nursery; convenient store clerk; dump truck driver...well, you get the idea. Paula's had a lot of jobs.

In 2001, she started writing a column for EDSToday about training your own service dog. In 2004 she began writing fiction as a form of mental therapy. Butch Girls Can Fix Anything is her debut novel. Other "Butch Girl" books are in the works as well as books in other genres.
