    In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

    If you could sum up Happy Accidents in three words, what would they be?

    Struggle Discovery Fulfillment


    Any additional comments?

    I was mesmerized by Jane's story and by her telling of it. The transitions in her life and personal growth are a joy to behold. It's lovely to "see" the real person that allows her character, Sue Sylvester, be both so tough and so soft! I hope many years from now that Jane writes "Happy Accidents: Part Deux"

    In her delightful and moving memoir, Sissy Spacek writes about her idyllic, barefoot childhood in a small East Texas town, with the clarity and wisdom that comes from never losing sight of her roots. Descended from industrious Czech immigrants and threadbare southern gentility, she grew up a tomboy, tagging along with two older brothers and absorbing grace and grit from her remarkable parents, who taught her that she could do anything.

    What did you love best about My Extraordinary Ordinary Life?

    The illuminating view of small-town Texas life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself both laughing and crying.


    Any additional comments?

    I was mesmerized with the Sissy's story-telling, both written and spoken. At first, I was put off by Sissy's trips far afield into her family's history, but came to understand that everything was important to the picture as a whole. A wonderful picture of small-town life and the high, high value of the experiencing the "ordinary."

    When Santa Cruz County deputy sheriff Jose Reyes, Ali’s classmate from the Arizona Police Academy, is gunned down and left to die, he is at first assumed to be an innocent victim of the drug wars escalating across the border. But the crime scene investigation shows there’s much more to it than that, and soon he and his pregnant wife, Teresa, both fall under suspicion of wrongdoing. Ali owes Reyes a debt of gratitude for the help he gave her years earlier when she was dealing with a troubled friend. When she’s summoned to his bedside at Physicians Medical Center in Tucson, she can't turn away.

    Yes, to continue the series. It had a nice level of surprise and suspense, although fairly predictable

    Yes, when Rose found out her parents did not care what kind of life she led after she ran away.
