New memoir details how one woman’s childhood dream of getting an award-winning photo led her to the world’s most bizarre places

Debuting author Brenda Prater Sellers shares her adventures and mishaps in ‘You Slept Where?’

Brenda Prater Sellers ticks off another item in her bucket list with the release of her memoir “You Slept Where?” (published by Archway Publishing, a division of Simon & Schuster).

Written in a modern-day Erma Bombeck-style, this book chronicles the journey of a Southern businesswoman work, life and family while pursuing a childhood dream of getting an award-winning photograph published in National Geographic. Her quest for “the shot” would take her to 69 countries and earned her a two-million-miler status on Delta Airlines, all while living life, mostly laughing.

Sellers shares her myriad encounters as she tackles her never-ending “To Do” list while dealing with a momma with dementia, a prankster father, and a husband dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She also tells about her experiences and mishaps at the world’s most bizarre places (imagine the movies Miss Congeniality meets National Lampoon’s Vacation in her version of Planes, Trains and Automobiles). From middle age baby boomers struggling with work-life balance to millennials wanting to experience adventure, “You Slept Where?” is a great resource of laughter and learning.

“The goal is to inspire readers to make their own ‘To Do’ list or at least laugh at my calamities. Hopefully, the cost saving tips in the appendix will help readers save enough pennies to offset the cost of the book,” the author states.
