Tucson, Arizona (PressExposure) May 14, 2012 -- If you feel like you're working harder than ever these days, consider the busy life of author S.G. Rogers. Owner of a fashion gallery and part-time cab driver in Northampton Mass., Rogers now ventures into new professional territory with the publication of her debut novel, The Taxi Chronicles: A Honey Walker Adventure.
Rogers' experience as a cabbie first led her to the idea for the book, which is rich with slice-of-life insight into her passengers, her city and the relationships that happen when seeming strangers come together for a taxi ride. Throw in some mobsters, drug traffic, dead bodies and an on-again, off-again romance with a particular member of local law enforcement, and readers are in for a wild ride.
Fast- moving, funny, and fabulous, THE TAXI CHRONICLES creates in Honey Walker a working-class hero for women everywhere, as fond of a great pair of shoes as she is fighting crime. Fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum are sure to get a charge out of Honey and her sidekick Belle, a fellow driver and reformed hooker with a penchant for gospel singing. Published by Village Green Press LLC, (http://villagegreenpressLLC.com) the ebook can be downloaded from amazon.com's Kindle store, Barnes and Noble Nook Books, at smashwords.com and was selected as an April HOT READ at manicreaders.com.
"Five Stars! "This book is SO much fun!" Barnes and Noble customer review " Five Stars! "Honey reminds me of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, but a cab driver is more intimately familiar with her town and its residents, I think, than a bounty hunter is. I lived in the town (Northampton, MA), and Rogers nails it, as well as nearby Holyoke, Springfield, and drug-traffickers-highway I-91. The denizens...are as zany and/or as far-out as the characters of this type of novel must be. However, they all carry a sense of believability...they could be real." Amazon.com customer review.
"Five Stars! "There are dead bodies, kidnappings, crazy fares that Honey keeps picking up in her cab, and other assorted disasters along the way. The Taxi Chronicles is entertaining, funny, and might even give Stephanie Plum a run for her money." manicreaders.com
