Trailer Trash With A Girl's Name - Father Figures
Being a boy with a girl's name was just the beginning...
Stacey Roberts detailed the family’s five-year adventure in their unpredictable Winnebago in his previous novel. Now, his free-spirited mother, entitled older brother, criminal stepfather, and not-so-trusty old Winnebago are back for the next chapter in his story.
Machetes at the breakfast table, shooting grapefruit for sport, and a dogged police detective get the story rolling, along with trailer park bullies and his mother’s daily menu from hell.
Through his work, Roberts explores the relationships between parent and child and shows how he broke away to pursue a new life with the family he created. It was not easy, and Roberts faced unbearable loss through the years. Nevertheless, this candid, charming adventure shows how he cherished the journey.
About Stacey Roberts (Cincinnati, Ohio Author)
Stacey Roberts was born in a smoky hospital in New Jersey in 1971. Nine years later, he and his family moved into a Winnebago and traveled across the country. After several near-death experiences, they settled first in California and then Florida.
He attended college at Florida State University and University of Miami, where he received his B.A. in English Literature instead of Finance, which was a great disappointment to his mother. He went on to get a Master’s degree in Early Modern European History at the University of Cincinnati, to which his mother said, “SSSStace. History? What do you need that for? What is wrong with you?”
His mother was right. He didn’t need it for anything, except to make arcane references about the Roman Empire or Henry VIII that no one else understands.
He founded a computer consulting firm outside of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1994, has two daughters (with girls' names) and resides in Northern Kentucky with his wife and their Golden Doodle, Augustus.
