Lucy Adams puts the fun in Funny!

Recently discovered this delightfully funny book by Southern Humorist Lucy Adams. “TUCK YOU SKIRT IN YOUR PANTIES AND RUN” is a great collection of funny and embarrassing moments that you hope you’ll never encounter, but still you’ll find yourself chuckling as you read of Lucy’s adventures.

I laughed just reading her bio which describes her like this … Mother of four, wife of one, teacher of many, writer of sorts, some days self-critical to the point of paralysis, bossy since birth, Lucy Adams trudges through life wanting a pool in her backyard so badly she can see the chlorine rainbows round the streetlights. Sometimes she wakes up in the morning thinking only of getting back in bed at night.

Her home is well organized. Everything has a place on the floor where she can easily find it, or die tripping over it.

She’s played taps for hundreds of withered houseplants. …Okay, you’ve got to love a sense of humor like this!

TUCK YOUR SKIRT IN YOUR PANTIES AND RUN  is Lucy Adams second book and follows on the heels of her smash hit “If Mama don’t laugh, it ain’t funny” – check her out, visit her blog and bring your funny bone. 

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
