We all blame our parents to some extent for the misfortunes of our childhood. Stacey Roberts can't ever quite forgive his mother for giving him a girl's name. And that was just the beginning.
Roberts detailed the family's five-year adventure in their unpredictable Winnebago in his previous novel. Now, his free-spirited mother, entitled older brother, criminal stepfather, and trusty old Winnebago are all back for the next chapter in his story.
Machetes at the breakfast table, shooting grapefruit for sport, and a dogged police detective get the story rolling, along with trailer park bullies and his mother's daily menu from hell.
Through his work, Roberts explores the relationships between parent and child and shows how he broke away to pursue a new life with the new family he created. It was not easy, and Roberts faced unbearable loss through the years. Nevertheless, this candid, charming adventure shows how he cherished the journey.

About the Author
Stacey Roberts spent his childhood traveling the country in his family's Winnebago. They eventually settled in Florida, where he attended Florida State University and the University of Miami. To his mother's consternation, he pursued a major in English literature instead of finance. He rebelled further by receiving his master's degree in early-modern European history from the University of Cincinnati. He can now both impress and frustrate the room with obscure references to Roman emperors and English monarchs.
Roberts founded his own computer consulting firm in 1994. He lives in Northern Kentucky with his wife, Nikki, and their Goldendoodle, Augustus.
