Mackinac Bridge Jesus is written for anyone, anywhere who s struggled with addiction, sexual orientation, mental health, nutty families, finding God, losing jobs, getting old, getting laid and generally living life on life s terms. It speaks to the dysfunctional members of society those of us known as the vast majority. Mackinac Bridge Jesus is a collection of twisted, tragic, comedic and tender biographical essays about healing, forgiveness, finding the perfect bra and embalming your relatives. Each story speaks to the freedom that comes when we stop taking ourselves so damn seriously. Mackinac Bridge Jesus is part tent revival, part 12-step meeting and part open-mic night at the Improv. If you like Augusten Burroughs, Anne Lamott, Emmet Fox or perhaps a grittier, gayer Erma Bombeck, Mackinaw Bridge Jesus is for you.

Charlotte Fisher (b. 1963) began her writing career passing notes in the 7th grade. Since then, she s worked as a journalist, a short-order cook, a PR flack, a dog walker and a greeting-card writer. Based in the Detroit area, her non-fiction work is largely biographical, focusing on sobriety, spirituality, healing and hope. Fisher shares her tragic, tender and twisted stories with the goal of helping others. She credits writers Anne Lamott and Erma Bombeck for their ability to find humor in adversity and wisdom in everyday life. Fisher received a BA in Journalism from Michigan State University and an MBA from The University of Michigan. She is most proud of her recovery, her volunteer work and the nine rescue animals she shares with her partner. She spends most of her time picking up poop and taking long naps. Her sobriety date is March 23, 2004.Review:
I rarely laugh out loud while reading a book. Just try not to while reading this clever collection of stories by Ms. Fisher. She managed to find the perfect blend of wit and sarcasm to balance the raw grit and reality of her lifetime struggle with addictions. I sure hope she continues to write, she has certainly found her gift..... --Janis D
