Lily Gilbert is pissed. She’s lost one leg to diabetes, and the next infection could kill her. She enters a nursing home ready to flout authority and kick administrative butt until the chill realities of institutionalization nearly flatten her. She soon calls it the Fun House for the scary sights and sounds that await her there.
Lily grapples with suicide until she becomes drawn in by the other residents and staffers – a quirky and eccentric crew with enough idiosyncrasies of their own to keep Lily intrigued. Prepare for more than a few surprises along the way.
Things get worse when the nursing home threatens to close leaving Lily no other place to go. How she, her daughter and her new friends handle this challenge shows that each stage of life can be its own adventure.

About the Author:
Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I live in the Pacific Northwest, out on the Olympic Peninsula. The most valuable thing in my wardrobe may be my rain boots. My dachshund is grumpy when wet, and since he’s shorter than the grass, he’s wet a lot.
My parents and my husband died in assisted care facilities, so I claim an unrivaled record for placing my butt in those hard visitor chairs. I’ve seen the ins and outs of the elder care world. FUN HOUSE CHRONICLES offers earthy guidance to anyone facing tough decisions for themselves or their loved ones.
I have two other novels on Amazon and will soon add a fourth. Search for Linda B. Myers on their site under Kindle books.
