Book Summary

Mavis and Lumpy are getting married. It is to be a small affair with a hot and spicy theme, a few close friends, and a celebrant on Skype.
"We want no fuss," said Mavis. "Just lots of food, great photos, and belly-dancing."
However…
Mavis’s idea of hot and spicy is not Lumpy’s, and Lumpy’s idea of great photos is definitely not Mavis’s. Mavis and Lumpy find there is more to getting married than organizing the dips. And as their relationship spirals out of control Mavis loses her mother and must come to terms with a past she would rather forget.
With a funeral befitting a sitcom, sibling rivalry on a par with a Shakespearean tragedy and a dying mother's impossible wish; Mavis and Lumpy relationship crumbles like a burnt chapatti.
And it is up to Nefertiti to make “things” right-so she thinks.

About the Author

Back in the days before TV had remote controls and Scotland was known for the Bay City Rollers Kerrie left Australia on a working holiday and fell in love with many things Scottish, along with belly dancing. After years of teaching belly dancing, Kerrie decided to write some of her experiences down in a series of stories called Belly Dancing and Beyond; novels about women who at one time or another went to Nefertiti’s belly dancing class.

Kerrie creates for fun and for readers who like hope with a quirky, twist. A mature woman who has been around the block too many times to count; Kerrie doesn’t ‘beat around the bush’ when it comes to her characters.

‘I like them earthy, ordinary and believable. I like to throw them in at the deep end and see what comes up, hopefully a surprise for everyone.’

‘Why reach for the stars, moon and a six pack when the real mystery is staring at you in the Co-op? I see spice in the ordinary, compassion in the indifferent and farcical in the routine. I want to create believable, earthy fantasies filled with hope, fun and a quirky, twist of spice and I want to make people laugh out loud.’

In her spare time Kerrie likes to paint pictures of round women, and dance under the influence of a glass of bubble- often accompanied by storytelling and the odd joke. Kerrie has, in the past inflicted her quirky style of humor on many- including the Edinburgh free fringe, community radio, several rest homes and pretty much anyone who sits still long enough to listen.

Kerrie has been short listed by the Ashram short story prize, and had two radio plays performed, one community radio and one for BBC Scotland.
