About the Author
Anna Mullins now lives on the outskirts of San Antonio Texas. She enjoys helping her youngest grandchildren with their school projects and various activities. She also loves visiting with her best friends who live in Houston as often as possible. Her five children and eleven grandchildren remain the focal point of her life. When Anna is not around those who love and understand her…she prefers to be alone to create whatever artistic endeavor she feels needs accomplishing, whether it’s painting in a variety of mediums…or writing…or cooking her family’s favorite foods.

Young Anna's aspirations were simple enough. She wanted a traditional life of marriage and family, similar to what her loving parents had provided for her. She married her high school sweetheart, Gus Mullens at 17 but sadly life would be a far cry from what she had imagined.
Anna's fascinating book is part memoir, part essay. She genuinely narrates her life's twists and turns while seamlessly expounding on how those events influenced her inner world. Ultimately her book strives to set the record straight by shedding light on a plethora of darkened family secrets. CONFESSIONS OF A CRAZY FOX was a delight to read and I found myself agreeing with many of Anna's conclusions about life.
The author is one who has survived ordeals and demonstrated the power of the human spirit through all the trials and the high joyful moments of life. Relationships between parent and child are of utmost importance, where hurts are forgiven and doors remain open to future possibilities. The contrast of such moments with the times when little is forgiven but one must keep going in spite of the pain and anger are described in powerful scenes. The catharsis of telling the truth about her life, the high moments, the low and desperate moments, the funny glitches, becomes for the author a path to healing. For one who is deeply spiritual yet damaged by the underside of religion in displays of human weaknesses in authority figures, Anna comes through scathed but whole.
This story tells of human failures, but also of human accomplishments, and the author has honored her family by giving them their place in the sun, despite the ups and downs of their lives. She will survive. And let's hope she will continue to write more stories of human nature and its achievement through her persistence and faith that in the end all will be well.
