Henry was born in a hidden cave on the Mississippi River. She was sent to an awful place called Kah-lidge for many years to learn to be a writer. Her hope is that her first series of young adult novels, The Homeschoolers, will make you laugh every now and then, get you excited about this spectacular thing called life, and teech ewe to spehl as gut as she do. ;)

A mortifying episode of in-school diarrhea sends witty and skeptical Christina Begoni flying into the arms of a holy-rolling homeschool group where she meets "Teenage Sex Incarnate," David, and his alarmingly sweet sister, Sunny. The group is complete when they are joined by two other hardened public school students, Christina's mustachioed younger brother and one deliciously rowdy redneck bully for a raucously funny and often gripping adventure on the Mississippi River. Will Christina be able to fight the wild river, a gun-toting grandpa and her own hilariously heathen ways to hold this group of unlikely friends together?
Q. How’s homeschooling going these days, Ricky?
A. Ah, man. Alright, I reckon. Pretty much like North Yokel High: just another place to catch up on my sleep and practice blaming my farts on somebody else. But we is reading one of them classic books right now. I ‘member that much. Wurthering Originals or The Scarlet Pumpernickel - something like that. The good thing is Kip and David, they don’t bother me none. But them girls, Sunny and Squirtina – excuse me; Christina- I forgot she don’t like to be called Squrtina. My bad. Anyways, I was just gone say that they hen peck the hell out of me. Sunny’s always up in my grill like a Jehovah’s Witness about Jesus, and Christina thinks I need to learn about the “cultural superiority of the French.” Oh, hell. Wait a minute...You ain’t one of them Witnesses or one of them Frenchy Fries; are ya? Ya’ll just cut me some slack if I say something stupid. Remember, you’re boy here is straight from the trailer.
Q Some readers have said they sensed sexual tension between you and Christina in The Homeschoolers: The Ballad of Squirtina.
A. Heheh. They said that? What Christina say? You ask her? Well, she’s all hot and heavy with David. But, hey, I’m single. And I took a look over at that follower box and seen that you got some pretty good-looking women up in here. Any girls wanna hang, drink a little moonshine, watch a little Duck Dynasty- give me a holler.
Q What do you want to do when you grow up, Ricky?
A. I got me a little business going already with one my uncles. Raccoon trapping business. We shoot them thangs, and these ‘ol boys from Russia buy them for the fur coats or coon skin caps or something. I never ask ‘em cause I get scared that’ll make ‘em think. Then, they’d prolly figure out that putting a coon skin on your head is a dumb thing to do. When that happens, I gotta come up with another way to get cigarette and strip club money. For my Grammaw. She loves the man candy.
Q. Thanks for your time, Ricky. Best of luck..
A. Hold on, now. Got something to plug. I’m a celebrity now. Even got me my own story.“A Very Ricky Sunday.” We giving it away for free ‘cause I told Henry, “You think you Larry the Cable Guy or somethin’? You ain’t that funny. You gone have to give that shiznit away.” But it’s about when Christina took one Grammaw’s weed pies up into a church. And people call me dumb. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/246267
