Trailer Trash, With a Girl's Name - The Novel


When the author was born, his mother did the unthinkable. She gave him a girl’s name—Stacey. But Stacey’s name was just the first hurdle he’d face in his uphill climb from birth to manhood. He also had to deal with an entitled older brother, the hodgepodge of different men his mother was involved with, and the nomadic lifestyle he was forced to endure for five years. And to top it all off, his mother couldn’t cook a decent meal to save her life. Trailer Trash, With a Girl’s Name is Stacey Roberts’ lighthearted, often hilarious account of growing up in an unstable household during the 1980s. Full of humor, history, and hope, it follows Stacey from the hospital room where he was born to the Winnebago that carried him across the country, filling in the gaps with a wit and humor that anyone with a dysfunctional family can appreciate. So go ahead and start reading. Once you hop aboard the Winnebago with Stacey and his quirky family, you’ll find that you’re in for the ride or your life, where what you learn along the way is not only entertaining, but also enormously enriching.

  3. I read your book, and it is hilarious, as well as beautifully written.

    I wish my parents had given me a boy's name, like Sidney or Darryl. I wasn't the only one in my school with my name, but I was the only one who spelled it "Kathryn," which caused a lot of confusion and misspelling. I not only have to spell my last name for everyone, I have to spell my first name, too!

    If I had a boy's name, I could have had all kinds of fun confusing people who would automatically assume I was a boy until they saw me.

    1. And imagine what fun it would have been for your singing career! I'm so glad you liked the book, and your kind words come at a time where I am struggling with writer's block. This is the antidote. Thank you!

    2. Well, there is Darryl Hannah, right? She has a boy's name, and she managed to have a great movie career, anyway. Of course, being drop-dead gorgeous doesn't hurt.
