About the Author

Teri Case is a native Nevadan. Her alcoholic father, bipolar mother, and nine siblings taught her to watch and learn from others and that laughter can lighten any load (at least for a few seconds). She often travels-watching, learning, and writing about people who just want to matter. She also runs the Tiger Drive Scholarship for students who want to reach, learn, and grow beyond their familiar environment by attending college.

"Tiger Drive" is an amazing novel. Author Teri Case has crafted a compelling story about a Nevada family which she describes as partially autobiographical. It is, however, totally unlike the coming-of-age novels you may associate with the Silver State, such as "The City of Trembling Leaves," by Walter Van Tilburg Clark (whose father was a university president) or "The Basque Hotel," by Robert Laxalt (whose brother became a governor and U.S. Senator). The Sloan family, as portrayed by Ms. Case, lived a precarious existence filled with dreams and hardships, and not in equal measure. It may, in fact, serve as a case study (no pun intended) in how the other half lives.

I just finished reading TIGER DRIVE, and after wiping my tears, I am writing my review. I'll be careful to not add any spoilers here, because I'd hate to give away the ending. Carrie is a high-schooler, a worrier, a list-writer (she calls them her "road maps to a different life"), and a shooting star to a hopefully brighter future. Her mother, Janice, is a singing star-wannabe, whose poor choices have dulled her shine ... but yet she never gives up hope. Harry, the father, is what I'd call a fallen star; he gives us a peek into depression, secrets, sadness ... and—in spite of it all—love. And finally, big brother WJ (a star in his own right), is a man full of anger, disappointment, and angst over the fear of being his authentic self. I love this story, which gives a truthful glimpse into family dysfunction, lies, and poverty, and the turmoil that's created when these issues seep into personal lives. This is a debut novel by author Teri Case, and I think she has done a wonderful job. It's hard to believe it's her first novel, and the effort shows.

It starts off heavy and the pages start turning. Sometimes you're rooting for and against a character in the span of five pages. The author does a great job of keeping the characters honest in their horribly flawed ways while leavings small crumbs to their redemption. I read it in 4 nights. Thank you.
