Pam Ferderbar was born and raised in Wisconsin, the only child of loving but quirky parents. She moved to Los Angeles, married the first man to see her fall off the turnip truck, wrote a short story that would later become Feng Shui and Charlotte Nightingale, began collecting stray dogs, divorced the man, fell in with a wild group of beachy goddesses, wrote a novel and then moved back to Wisconsin where the goddesses wear long underwear and cheese hats and so do the men.
APARTMENT #4. CLUTTER. DEAD PLANTS. A MIRROR FACING THE BED. PLUMBING ON THE FRITZ. WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
For Charlotte Nightingale the question is will anything ever go right? Stuck in rut, constantly repeating the mistakes that knock her down, what will it take to turn Charlotte’s life, and luck, around?
Enter Kwan, a mysterious stranger who secretly practices Feng Shui in Charlotte’s apartment. Will the ancient art of ”wind and water”—the Chinese philosophy of harmonizing people with the surrounding environment—change Charlotte’s life for the better, or is it all about to get worse?
A laugh-out-loud page turner, Feng Shui and Charlotte Nightingale is an enchanting contemporary fable and a captivating debut by Pam Ferderbar.
Two additional Charlotte nightingale novels are in the works as well as a bonus coffee table book entitled #CharlotteMoment, which is a compilation of reader's "bad luck" stories complimented by photography and illustrations.
