About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

This book provides a revealing look at one woman's quest to become a funeral director in a "Dead Man's World." The book chronicles the life of a woman, an enigma who sets out to achieve the one goal she set early in life. She was determined to become a female mortician in an industry dominated by predatory men.

Recently separated from her husband and far away from her middle-class military upbringing, we will follow her as she struggles to make a new life for her and her young son as she travels to California during the 1980's. Her journey takes her from a sheltered adolescence in the suburbs of Maryland to the gritty streets of Compton and Watts. After having found out that California had nothing to offer her, she then takes on a life-altering experience by joining the military trying to fulfill her dream. During the course of her travels she falls in and out of the arms of men who take her through a life filled with money, mystery, infidelity and sometimes abuse.
