Author-Book Profile: Such is Life by Jeri Walker-Bickett

Today author Jeri Walker-Bickett is here for a visit.  Please feel free to say hello here or at her pads. ~Thank you.

[Helping authors promote their books.  Being profiled does not necessarily mean I recommend the book.]

Jeri Walker-Bickett (@JeriWB) is an author, editor, and teacher. She primarily writes contemporary literary fiction and psychological suspense. Such is Life, her short story collection, is now available. Her forthcoming novel, Lost Girl Road, is a ghost story set in the woods of northwest Montana. She blogs about literature and writing on her twisted book blog: What do I know? Please connect with her at

Despite growing up in the rough Idaho mining town of Wallace, she earned multiple writing degrees, and became a devoted English teacher who has since left the classroom to pursue writing and editing full time. Food and travel continually inspire her creativity and love of photography. In addition, she dabbles in creative nonfiction, poetry, and educational video tutorials. She currently lives in North Carolina with her wonderful husband and their demanding pets.

These realistic short stories feature characters down on their luck, yet stubborn enough to move on. A tryst between a carnival worker and a pretty high school student begs the question of who takes advantage of who. A young man’s encounter with a drug addict finds him striking out on his own in hopes of a better life. An English teacher publishes literature deemed inappropriate by a Mormon community. A mother goes on a quest to get rid of the family’s aggressive pet. Finally, New Orleans provides the backdrop for a stroll with a psychotic housewife. Such is life!

Popular Poe Stories; Such is Life


  1. You hooked me. Just downloaded "Such Is Life." (There's also another book with the same name, though.)

  2. Though not usually a fan of the short story genre I think I could make an exception for this collection. Nice to meet Jeri, thanks for the introduction.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
