To write a compelling autobiography is a feat, as not everyone may be interested in your own life story. The challenge for an author in this genre is to make his or her memoir intriguing enough to deserve a reader’s attention. Xlibris author Teri Metcalf has pulled that off, winning in the autobiography category of the 2016 Texas Association of Authors (TxAuthors) Best Book Awards for his book “Rambler Rose.”
The TxAuthors panel of judges has picked 25 winners “of stellar quality” for readers, “who love to fall into the pages, the experience of climbing out with the greatest satisfaction.” TxAuthors help Texas authors to promote their works state-wide, country-wide, and around the world.
Teri and other awardees will be awarded at the Celebration of Authors event on April 30 and May 1, 2016. The TXAuthors Awards is now on its fifth year.
A coming-of-age story set in coastal California between the 1950s and 60s, Rambler Rose recounts Teri Metcalf’s family relationships and the influences of American pop culture, political culture, as well as race and religion to her childhood and present life.
