Live from the Road
“A delightful book. Four strong women on a wonderful road trip having fun and discovering themselves and dealing with relationships.” – Amazon review
Live from the Road takes the reader on an often humorous, yet harrowing, journey as Meg Newton and Sally Sutton seek a change in the mundane routine of their lives. “Is this all there is?” Sally asks Meg after visiting a dying friend in the hospital. That’s when Meg suggests they take a journey to discover the answer. Joined by their daughters, they set off on a journey of salvation enhanced by the glories of the Mother Road. Along the way, they are joined by a Chicago bluesman, a Pakistani liquor storeowner from Illinois, a Marine from Missouri, a gun-toting momma from Oklahoma, and a motel clerk from New Mexico. Meg, mourning for her dead son, learns to share her pain with her daughter CC. When Sally’s husband of almost thirty years leaves a voice mail telling her he’s leaving, both Sally and her daughter Ramona discover some truths about love and independence.
Death, divorce and deception help to reveal the inner journey taking place under the blazing desert sun as a Route 66 motel owner reads the Bhagavad-Gita and an eagle provides the sign they’ve all been seeking. Enlightenment comes tiptoeing in at dawn in a Tucumcari laundromat, while singing karaoke at a bar in Gallup, New Mexico, and during dinner at the Roadkill Café in Seligman, Arizona. The four women’s lives will never be the same after the road leads them to their hearts – the true destination for these road warriors.
“A Lethal Legacy by P.C. Zick was a real surprise-find and treat for me. Knowing this superb author from her award nominated environmental novel Trails in the Sand, I was not prepared for a psychological thriller so incredibly well written and breath-taking.” – Christoph Fischer

This psychological thriller takes the reader on a journey through Ed’s discovery of why his family can’t find the acceptance they all seek. It takes divorce, disease and death for Ed to finally realize that acceptance only comes from within once he’s willing to face his own true feelings.
