My name is Lisa V. Proulx and I am an award winning and bestselling author of 12 books. My bestseller, WEEDMONKEY, is the true story of my mother’s life growing up in coal mining camps in Appalachia during the Depression as the daughter of the town prostitute.
It is not only a story of grinding poverty but of resilience and how a woman who came from nothing went on to achieve great things in her life and finally find redemption with the woman she called Mom.
My mother began writing this book when I was a child and on her deathbed, asked me to finish writing it for her.
