About the Author

A native Houstonian and a graduate of the Texas Tech University, Amy W. Daughters has been a freelance writer for more than a decade--mostly covering college football and sometimes talking about her feelings. Her debut novel, You Cannot Mess This Up: A True Story That Never Happened (She Writes Press, 2019), was selected as the Silver Winner for Humor in the 2019 Foreword INDIES and the Overall Winner for Humor/Comedy in the 2020 Next Generation Indie Awards. She is married to a foxy computer person, Willie (53), and is the lucky mother of two amazing sons, Will (23) and Matthew (15). An amateur historian, hack golfer, charlatan fashion model, and regular on the ribbon dancing circuit, Amy--a proud former resident of Blackwell, England, and Dayton, Ohio--currently lives in Tomball, Texas, a suburb of Houston.


"With a fine eye for detail and dialogue and from a middle child's perspective, Amy Weinland Daughters has written a funny, wrenching, insightful novel about what it's like to come home . . . and the fact that you never really can come home again." --Kathy Hepinstall, author of The Book of Polly "Amy's time-traveling visit to her ten-year-old self's world proves simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking--but always completely captivating. As she gains a better understanding of the family dynamics that shaped her life, she prompts readers to reflect upon our own. A truly fun, inspired, and enlightening read!" --Sherry Stanfa-Stanley, author of Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truths and Dares
