Karla Clark with her agent Connor Eck of Lucinda Literary
Sabina Giovanotti, waitress by day and aunt extraordinaire by night, is forty, single, and still living above her family's folksy cafe in Chicago's Little Italy. Sandwiched between four sisters, all happily married with children, and her mother and aunt, both cooks at the cafe, Sabina is trying to come to terms with the fact that her life didn't turn out as planned.
BETWEEN COURSES: A CULINARY LOVE STORY
When her father dies, May Dearborne and her three older brothers all ask the same question: who is going to take care of Kipp? Kipp being their forty-five-year-old autistic brother. Who are they kidding? Since May is widowed, childless, and Kipp's twin to boot, of course it will be her.
EVERYBODY AND THEIR BROTHER
Have you ever wondered if your lost loved ones can look down on you from Heaven? Annie Langdon can. And what she sees is a family falling apart. It’s been a year since her tragic death and still her husband and three children can’t seem to get it together. Help comes when three kooky blonde bombshells move in next door and turn their lives upside down. In ANNIE'S HEAVAN, Karla Clark intimately explores the themes of life and afterlife, family secrets, sibling rivalry, and death-defying love.
The thirteen stories in this collection feature characters adrift . . . pearls of people facing knotty situations. A father away on a business trip who misses his wife and daughters more than they miss him. A newly married woman whose husband "grandmothers" her to death. A garbage man who refuses to define himself by his occupation. And many more. Combining humor with grace, KNOTTED PEARLS teases out issues of the heart in the everyday lives of everyday people.
