Sometimes the most unlikely people are the most extraordinary . . . Praise for The Life and Death of Terry Dodd “. . . gritty and real. The authenticity leaped off the page . . . “ . . . an intriguing look at humanity, the good and evil in all of us, and how we coexist in the world.”—CJ Julson “The heart and soul of the characters shine through in every page . . .”—Laura Brown About The Life and Death of Terry Dodd To everyone else, Terry Dodd is just another next door neighbor, another drunk in Los Angeles, another human in California. But to young Joann Shea he's different and she cannot understand why.

But one simple act of kindness changes everything, and the drunk next door proves to be more than just a drunk . . .
