Acerca de


Thirty-three-year-old Julia Daniel doesn't really feel at home anywhere. Her life in L.A. is lonely, and her career as a food stylist for a struggling gourmet magazine falls well short of her desire to be a photographer. Although she liked growing up in Kentucky, ever since her mother's death and her father's remarriage, her birthplace hasn't felt like the right fit either. After the tragic deaths of her father and stepmother in a plane crash, Julia's true odyssey begins. Orphaned and adrift, she tries to find her way in the world while fending off a crazy boss, a pilfering stepsister, and a looming depression.

Though shored up by two good friends and an excellent psychologist who helps her work through her grief, it is an unexpected-and comically disastrous-trip to Sedona for the magazine that finally enables Julia to move forward. Returning to L.A., she searches for the strength to strike out on her own, take a chance on love, and seek a tentative peace with her wayward stepsister.

Both humorous and heartbreaking, Blue Plate Special serves up an uplifting exploration of the courage it takes to embrace life after loss.

From the Back Cover:

"Blue Plate Special is so smart, so wry, so beautifully written and so astonishingly observed that I want to invoke whatever rating--five stars, A-plus, standing ovation--best conveys the message, You must not miss the great pleasures of this wonderful novel and the talents of Frances Norris."
- Elinor Lipman, author of The Pursuit of Alice Thrift and The Inn at Lake Devine

"Frances Norris leavens her moving story of a thirty-something's struggle to secure a place for herself with a hilarious send-up of pretentiousness in many guises from L. A. to Appalachia."
- Christina Schwarz, author of Drowning Ruth
