P.C. Zick about this book: Live from the Road is the story of two women who have just turned fifty and want to do something extraordinary. One night, they decide to take a trip down Route 66, from Chicago to L.A. When their grown daughters learn about the trip, they ask to tag along. Those two, CC and Ramona, are just the first two of many who begin to follow Meg and Sally down the Mother Road. The story is about the inner journey each of the women take and has very little to do with the destination. In 2007, I took this trip with my best friend and our daughters and all along the way everyone kept telling me I needed to write a book about the trip. I didn't want to write a memoir because fiction is my favorite form, and I could have a lot of fun creating wacky experiences and more characters. Women seem to resonate with the book and the relationship between the daughters. While the book has a humorous tone, their are serious issues each one of them face during the trip.
I hope readers are entertained by reading Live from the Road, but I also hope they take away some deeper meanings about the importance of communicating feelings and accepting that life is here and now and not some location on the other side of the country.
