Fun. Raucous. Haunting. Sad.
Best friends Meg and Sally seek a change in the mundane routine of their lives. "Is this all there is?" Sally asks Meg after visiting a dying friend in the hospital. That's when Meg suggests they take a journey to discover the answer. Joined by their daughters, they set off on a journey of salvation enhanced by the glories of the Mother Road. 
Along the way, they are joined by a Chicago bluesman, a Pakistani liquor store owner from Illinois, a Marine from Missouri, a gun-toting momma from Oklahoma, and a motel clerk from New Mexico. Meg, mourning for her dead son, learns to share her pain with her daughter CC. When Sally's husband of almost thirty years leaves a voicemail telling her he's leaving, both Sally and her daughter Ramona discover some truths about love and independence. 
Death, divorce and deception help to reveal the inner journey taking place under the blazing desert sun as a Route 66 motel owner reads the Bhagavad-Gita and an eagle provides the sign they've all been seeking. Enlightenment comes tiptoeing in at dawn in a Tucumcari laundromat, while singing karaoke at a bar in New Mexico, and during dinner at the Roadkill Café in Seligman, Arizona. The four women's lives will never be the same after the road leads them to their hearts--the true destination for these road warriors. 
Buy Live from the Road for a magical and humorous and poignant journey with the road warriors of Route 66.

From the Author:

I've always loved road trip books, such as On the Road by Jack Kerouac and Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck. I've always loved to travel. Then in 2007, my girlfriend and I hatched the idea of taking a trip down Route 66 all the way from Chicago to L.A. Our daughters, both in their twenties, asked to join us. Off we went on our adventure. The trip was a blast and everything we did seemed to be infused with meaning and serendipity. Of course, I kept a journal about the places we visited, and when I came home I began working on the novel. Even though there are four women (mothers and daughters) who travel together in Live from the Road and the setting is real, the rest is my imagination about what could have happened interspersed with a few sparks from the real trip. I took reality and blew it up as big as the fiberglass giants we saw on the road. I enjoyed writing the book almost as much as taking the trip because Route 66 is a road that writes itself.

From the Inside Flap:

Live from the Road is available in eBook, paperback, and audio versions.
