I come from a large family. My Mother's biggest fear was that one or all of us would die on her watch when we were babies and then children. As we grew up, her fear shifted a little - not just that we would die, but that we would be found Dead In A Ditch. It was the ditch part that always made it seem so much worse, something drug or alcohol related, to be sure. Mother's children crumpled up and tossed out the window like an old beer can. "Where have you been?" she would say, "I was worried sick. I thought you were dead in a ditch." This was Mother's mantra.
Humorous, beautifully written, observant, and heartbreakingly honest ... you will be entertained
"Jody Seay handed me this book and said, 'I hope you laugh so hard you bust your spleen.' I'm happy to say that my spleen survived intact - but my pancreas is still in a splint. Jody Seay is ONE FUNNY WRITER." - Jerry Juhl, 3-time Emmy Award winner, former head writer for The Muppets and Jim Henson Productions, screenwriter for The Muppet Movie and Muppets Treasure Island, head writer for The Muppet Show
"Dead In A Ditch is the hilarious memoir of a tomboy Texan, a little...hellion who takes every dare. Jody Seay is also a worry-wart. How many ways in Texas can you die if you're not careful? If the snakes don't getcha the atom bomb will, and in the meantime, watch out for lockjaw! A smart, funny tough survivor of a goofy family and her own weird antics, Seay (pronounced See) is one helluva writer and a great observer of the absurdities and poignancy of family life in Texas." - Robin Cody, Award Winning Author of Another Way the River Has, Ricochet River and Voyage of a Summer Sun
