Flora Reviews… My Name Is Agnes by Kelly Brookbank. My thanks to the publisher, BooksGoSocial (via Netgalley) for the eBook in exchange for my candid …
Kelly Brookbank will be the first to admit it…she gets her best ideas in the shower. She bets
everybody does, in fact. Probably Edison spent most of his life in the bathtub. Must have to do
with circulation or something…Kelly doesn’t know, go ask someone smart.
So she got an idea in the shower, then fine-tuned it that one time she went on the treadmill.
Somebody somewhere told her she was supposed to write down a timeline, so she sat down on
her very comfortable couch and as her rear-end expanded, her fingers typed what her tornado of a brain told her to. Five months later the first wicked version of My Name is Agnes was born. In between her rear-end expansions and her brainstorms, Kelly is a hockey mom of two, a wife of three, and a gardener of one million weeds and five plants.
Kelly has never won an award because those are for hoity toity serious books, not fun and a bit nasty books like ‘My Name is Agnes‘. Plus, there is too many swears in her book for “Book of high standing in the 3rd century of Queen who’s it’s name” or whatever award. If there was an award for ‘Fun, hip, witch that every woman wants to be like’, Agnes would totally get that award!
