About the Author

Wendy Dager is a professional freelance writer who has spent decades acquiring and implementing a flexibility that has helped her work become widely published in a variety of formats. She’s written humorous greeting card copy, flash animation scripts, a biweekly newspaper opinion column, corporate newsletters, magazine and newspaper feature articles, press releases and more. Her quirky sense of humor has appeared on buttons, key chains, magnets and bumper stickers; and her articles and essays always reflect a unique perspective on the world, particularly when it comes to family and community issues. Wendy’s love of generating controversy—and making people stop and think—combined with her penchant for wearing vintage clothes and jewelry, garnered her the USA Network title of one of America’s Most Unique Characters. She’s more comfortable in a vintage skirt and Dr. Martens boots than in a suit and heels, but she’ll adapt for formal occasions. Just don’t ask to see her flaming typewriter tattoo—she might show it to you. A native Southern Californian, Wendy lives in suburbia with her handsome husband and their high-strung Border collie mix. Occasionally, the children show up to ask what’s for dinner.

Full Disclosure: I am the author's aged father. I bought the book on Amazon for my Kindle even though Wendy warned me that it might not be my cup of tea. That I might be shocked and it was full of social, sexual and music references that were at best obscure and at worst antithetical to my generational beliefs and tastes. I play Chopin and Schumann on the piano, listen to Beethoven, read about superstrings, Higgs bosons, history, and the last book that I read prior to this one was "Lonesome Dove" via my Kindle. But I really love my youngest daughter who calls me almost every day and I enjoy her newspaper columns, her unusual way of dressing, her choice of cars that have Flying Wendy decals and flames on them and her various vintage outfits and elephant purses and the red or purple streaks in her hair. And I really enjoy her never ending stream of consciousness and entertaining verbalization carried to my fading ears on her very melodious voice. So as conservative as I am (and she promised me a free autographed hard copy) I bought the book.

Turns out that I enjoyed it thoroughly and actually am sorry that it ended. It's true that there are references to music and bands of which I had no clue and various sexual activities going on (my memory fails me ) but it was funny, interesting and held my attention throughout. Daphne Lee-Lee is my daughter with a twist. I was intrigued by the story and entertained by an almost stand-up comedy intensity throughout the book yet there were real elements of a mystery and some real characters involved. And there was a real "surprise ending". I wonder what Daphne Lee-Lee and her band will be up to next?

This book was so much fun to read. It was funny, intriguing and so much more. I hope a sequel is in the works. It has been a long time since I was sad to finish reading a book as it meant there was no more left to read.

I knew that Wendy could write. I knew that she was witty and lovably quirky. But I didn't know that she could pen a novel that would keep me enthralled from start to finish. This is such a fun little book and, from an editor's point of view, extremely well-written and well-organized. While she takes the reader along on some surprising twists and turns, she never leaves you behind. But she does keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.

I enjoyed "I Murdered the PTA" from a woman's point of view. But the man in our house also read it in one sitting. At one point, he thought he could predict the outcome. WRONG! Wendy cleverly outwitted this reader.

Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. It's an unexpected treat.

I just finished reading "I Murdered the PTA" by Wendy Dager. A fast easy read, interesting and full of humor. It's a laugh out loud romp through small town life filled with quirky characters, a believable story with an extremely exciting set of circumstances. Wendy Dager's use of humorous metaphors and the injection of well placed cliches kept me reading into the night, as the plot twists had me guessing, "Who done it?" I can't wait for a sequel. Good work, Wendy.
