Grumbles the Novel, Book One: Take a Pill
It opens in Prê:t-a-Porter, a swampy backwater of upstate New York when our heroine Pettie Grumbles is re-instated to the Special Services unit of the Post Office. With evil doers and potato pirates a foot, Pettie is given the mission to boldly go where no Grumbles has gone before and return to Canada. There, she must defeat the dreaded Weatherman who, with his Weather or Not TV, and perpetual green screen, has done what no man has done before and fulfilled an election promise to keep the world seventy-two and sunny.
Complicating matters is the fact that the man who has stolen our heroine's heart, Hector, just happens to have a twin brother who's always in the limelight and needing his help. Do the two of them control the world together? Pettie isn't sure. When she discovers that there hasn't been full disclosure and a previously unknown (egad!) third twin sails into the picture, all bets are off if she and Hector can weather this storm.
About the Author: Karen Faris
As an advocate for responsible government and a decent education for all children, Karen Faris has been complaining for as long as anyone can remember. Rather than go live on a planet for one as some may have suggested, she decided to write fiction.
She resides in Rochester, New York where she enjoys swimming, biking along the Erie Canal, and running almost as fast as she can walk.
She lives in a suburb blissfully unaware if the place sports a slogan such as in Webster, where life is worth living, or Perinton, the greatest trail town or Fairport, the All-American town. Despite the lack of signage, she suspects her suburb is still All American unless the Canadians have invaded and changed the border without anyone knowing about it. She doubts that this has happened because they would have written ahead to ask if anyone minded.
She has a tendency to get silly because life is too short and too serious too much of the time. Grumbles the Novel is her antidote to that.
