How much would you sacrifice to hide a secret? The answer reveals itself as Andee Camp, after inheriting a box of old photographs and journals, accepts a challenge from her mother to write a novel based on their family. What evolves is not only the fulfillment of a dream, but the reality of her relationship with her parents and theirs with each other.
As Andee writes the stories of two sets of twins born on the same day seventeen hundred miles apart, the mysteries defining the Smith and Brown families become more poignant as the pieces in the complicated puzzle begin to fit together.
The very fabric of long-held truths unravel in a tapestry woven with love and betrayal, joy and tragedy, humor and melancholy. As a reader, if given the opportunity, would you like to examine your own life in a box?
Life in a Box is a roller coaster ride until the very end providing a blend of mystery and history as the colorful and memorable characters come alive on the pages. It is like leaping off the diving board and seeing the sky from the bottom of the pool. When the author breaks through the ripples, readers understand the depth of the layered story...a literary gem
JoDee Neathery, drawing from her Southern California and Texas roots, plucked a few personalities off the family tree, encasing their world inside fictional events to create a literary novel. “I spent many hours savoring a suitcase full of old photographs and journals, realizing by discovering the past, the present became relevant. Every face and every word inside this treasure trove of antiquity told a story.”
JoDee spent her professional life in the banking industry, prior to branching out into the recruiting business with an exclusive contract with TracyLocke Public Relations and Bustin & Company in Dallas, and Creamer Dickson Basford in New York. Upon relocating to East Texas, JoDee spent six years handling public relations for a non-profit, and writing freelance articles for the newspaper, trade publications, newsletters, installation ceremony scripts, and sadly a few obituaries.
Her dream “job” has been chairing, writing minutes, and
reviews for her ninety-three member book club, Bookers, for the past thirteen
years. She also enjoys a byline, Back Porch Musings, a light-hearted view of life
in general, in an area newspaper.
She and her husband live in close proximity to their only daughter, son-inlaw,
two grandsons, a bird dog, three cats, a donkey, and a few head of cattle.
Always an avid reader with a love of the written word, JoDee took a leap of faith
debuting her novel, five years in the making.
