About the Book

Raggedy Panties is the story about one woman's journey to self-realization. It's centered around the life of a young, upwardly mobile, nubile female, Carmen Layfield. It tells the story of her obsession with the relationship with the man of her dreams, Kyle Sealy, and the showdown between her and 'the other woman,' her arch nemesis, Robbi Gant. It goes on to depict how she deals with the constant pressures of her roller coaster relationship. She is enlightened when she is challenged to admit truthfully to herself about her own behavior in her relationships of romance. She discovers an innovative method for helping herself deal with the high expectations and pressures of society with regard to the relationships between men and women.

Many books have been published that focus on male bashing and what the male's contribution is to a demised relationship with a woman. What makes Raggedy Panties unique is that it candidly addresses the female and her undeniable contribution to a man's behavior and the outcome of her relationship with him. It exposes what females do from the outset, and beyond, to lay a foundation for disappointment in the quest for happiness with a man. In addition, Raggedy Panties offers an innovative solution for women for identifying and solving one's own emotional problems associated with a relationship of love or obsession...especially when you're just too ashamed to tell anyone else!
