Confessions of A Do-Gooder Gone Bad is a wry, humorous coming of age memoir about a well-intentioned “problem child” raised by conservative, evangelical Christian parents in Southern California during the Sixties and Seventies. As she naively stumbles through her youth and young adulthood, one misadventure after another, she also struggles to reconcile her ultra-Christian upbringing with women’s liberation, prejudice, protest and poverty during this turbulent era, eventually gaining a different perspective of faith in a world more complicated, terrifying, funny and wonderful than she expected.
Cover: Angel, oil on canvas,Kim Dingle, 1992
“Ann K. Howley’s Confessions of a Do-Gooder Gone Bad tell of Buttered Toast and Jelly, Identity Crisis and Polyester and Other Malfunctions – the wonderful world of people born in the Sixties. Her confessions about how she gradually breaks away from her parents’ traditional world and starts working in the television industry are funny and utterly charming. 5 Stars!” --Gisela Hausmann, author, “Naked Determination, 41 Stories About Overcoming Fear"
Ann K. Howley is a Wonder Bread, middle-class girl who has never thrown a punch, is cursed with a big bottom, and who celebrated a personal milestone when she finally drummed up the nerve to call a crabby lady a b*tch.
She is a regular contributor to Pittsburgh Parent Magazine and her articles have appeared in publications nationwide, including in skirt! Magazine, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, LA Reader, the Mirror newspapers, Writer’s News Weekly, Clever Magazine, The Inkwell.
