All About Books: Kris Neri
Award-winning fiction writer and writing teacher Kris Neri discussed with Lynn Moorer her latest book, Hopscotch Life, whose protagonist, Plum Tardy, is quirky, goofy, and missed getting a copy of life’s rulebook. Just as she discovers that her executive chef job has evaporated because one of the owners has absconded with the restaurant assets, she finds her fiancé has taken both another woman to bed and Plum’s share of house payments. Jobless and essentially homeless, she flees on a whim to Applewood, Arizona to the heart of a battle to site a new big box Budget-Mart—a battle which involves characters who turn out to have historical and familial connection to Plum and who savor her uniqueness.
