SPOTLIGHT AUTHOR!

 “SPOTLIGHT” AUTHOR

         MICKI PELUSO      

MICKI PELUSO began writing after a personal tragedy. This led to a first time publication in Victimology: An International Magazine and a career in Journalism. She’s freelanced and been staff writer for one major newspaper, written for two more and has published short fiction and non-fiction, as well as slice of life stories in colleges, magazines and e-zine editions.

Her first book was published in 2012, a funny family memoir of love, loss and survival, called “…AND THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG,” which won the Nesta CBC Silver Award for Writing That Builds Character, won third place in the Predators and Editors Contest, and first place for People’s Choice Monthly Award. This book is close to her heart since it’s a deathbed promise to her dying child. It has the humor of CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, with the heart of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.

Some reviewers liken her writing to a cross between Erma Bombeck and Harper Lee. She has over a dozen short stories in ‘Women’s Memoirs,’ ‘Tales2Inspire,’ and ‘Creature Features.’ She is presently working on a collection of short fiction and slice of life stories in a book collection called “DON’T PLUCK THE DUCK,” due to be released in late 2017. Author Peluso is a multi-genre and speculative writer who plans to tackle novels next.

And The Whippoorwill Sang by Micki Peluso

BOOK BLURB:

It is a day like any other, except the intense heat wave has broken, and signs of early fall are in the air.

Around the dining room table of her 100-year-old farmhouse, Micki Peluso’s six children, along with three of their friends, eagerly gulp down a chicken dinner.  As soon as the last morsel is ravished, the lot of them is off in different directions.  Except for the one whose turn it is to do the dishes.  After offering her mother a buck if she’ll do them, with an impish grin, the child rushes out the front door, too excited for a hug, calling out “Bye, Mom,” as the door slams shut.  For the Pelusos, the nightmare begins.

  3. Hello My Dear,
    First, congratulations on your Spotlight week! This is an honor. You know how much I have enjoyed And The Whippoorwill Sang. It is one of those books that I go back and read again and again because the humor and the life lessons are hidden like pearls within your writing and the way you relate to your readers.
    It is also an honor to know you, Micki. To be able to call you friend.
    All the best, and now I need to go find the interview and listen to it. I always learn something new that you and I have never shared before.
    Shalom aleichem,
