Sometimes, Custer is just an old yeller dog...
and Naked Ladies are fully clothed!

The third book in the Turtle Trilogy...

Custer and His Naked Ladies
Kindle and paperback

Janelle Meraz Hooper

When her husband unexpectedly dumps her, Glory boards an Oklahoma-bound plane at the Sea-Tac Airport. On her way to the ticket counter, she takes the framed photo of her husband out of her gym bag and dumps it into the nearest trash bin—frame and all. She has wasted too many years on a man who doesn’t want her, and her biological clock is beginning to pound like a powwow drum.

Part Hispanic, part Anglo, and raised on the reservation, Glory hopes that by going back to her roots she’ll discover who she is, but she finds her home is in turmoil. Her greedy stepmother has returned, a group of dysfunctional mobsters wants her mother’s land on the Indian reservation to build a casino, her pastor cousin is kidnapped in Mexico while on a mission, and Glory’s beloved turtles are in an environmental crisis.

Her biggest problem of all may be Soap, a sexy Comanche lawyer who wants to do something about that powwow drum pounding in her head…

Sprinkled with Spanish phrases and Comanche words, Custer and His Naked Ladies is full of Southwest flavor. iUniverse, 206 pages, Paperback$15.95, Kindle $7.00.

Kindle short story book on sale! Teacher favorite!

Kindle version now $2.99 USD

  What’s a chick story? To me, it’s a story with no drugs, bombs, or spies who have numbers instead of names. And clean. It’s gotta be clean. Spend some time with Free Pecan Pie, and its other stories and shorts like Elvis Has Left the Building…and is Living in My Computer, Are the Snacks Here Yet?, Wanda the Witless Witch of Boo, The New Anything-But-Turkey Diet, My Christmas List, and more and have a smile on me.

  I balanced out the short stories with some commentaries so we won’t forget where we’ve been…and how far we have to go.
  If you’re looking for the answer to world peace, you probably won’t find it here, but why does everything have to be so serious? Get out, have some fun, and take Free Pecan Pie and Other Chick Stories along with you! A good book for those practising their English.

Note: This book has the Bridge to Divorce story that was so popular it was pirated and posted all over the Internet.
