The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude
Are you ready for a class in Advanced Holiness for people from all walks of life? Then, perhaps you're ready to take a trip to the Have A Heart convent in Bucksnort, Wisconsin. There, you'll meet a nun you're not likely to forget - Sister Mary Olga Fortitude.
The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude is a satire with a spiritual message, but there's a lot of hanky panky going on here. Sister Mary Olga is an irreverent nun who has some unique spiritual views that differ from those of the Pope. She's a great believer of "to each, one's own." She also loves her Marlboros and her bourbon. Just don't let the Reverend Mother in on her secret. The next class in Advanced Holiness may be canceled.
Here in Bucksnort, you'll meet a zany cast of all-too-human characters. There's a lot of secret-keeping going on here, but Sister Mary Olga will be sure to deliver the goods in order to provide you with good and bad examples of holiness.
The Reverend Mother is a former prostitute. The convent's chef is a gay cowboy. Priscilla Bunhead is the town busybody who opens some other closet doors. She, along with the other folks on Dinkledorf Drive, serve up examples of what not to do.
One thing's for sure. These characters will lighten your load and help you to not take life so seriously. Get ready for non-stop laughs.
"The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude is a fresh and quick read that is thoroughly enjoyable. Aujourdi'hui has penned a story with great character development filled with colorful verbal skill. I've just found out that this is the beginning of a series and can't wait for the next installment to see what Sister Mary Olga will do next."
-Jennifer Chase, Author of Compulsion & Dead Game
"This was really cute and a very quick read. The lead character is Sister Mary Olga Fortitude who is a whiskey lover and a Marlboro smoking nun. The author has her narrating the book in a radio broadcast format, Sister Mary speaks directly to you. I especially love the photo on the back cover, the nun reminds me of John Belushi! The book is filled with colorful characters that will have you cracking up out loud. I was fortunate enough to win a copy of this and the author autographed it as well."
"This book is well written and lots of fun. It's a quick and easy read that leaves you wanting more. You will easily relate to many if not all of the characters. Would love to see this book made into a play. I am eagerly awaiting Sister Mary Olga Fortitudes next misadventure."
"How can you not help loving Sister Mary Olga Fortitude? I think Davis might have known some of the same nuns I had in school while growing up. I can just imagine some of the characters, like Jewels, Diddles, Margarine, and Fartley living in my old neighborhood."
Thomas F. Shubnell
"In settling in with the very out of the ordinary nun, Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, I laughed at the very "pickle" she often got herself into. This book is a nicely crafted book that flows so well that it was hard to put it down. I love the characters and look forward to seeing what kind of interesting situations our most holy Sister manages to become involved in. She is a one-of-a-kind mentor to every kind of patron of the church and I wish there had been one like her around when I was growing up. Great read!!"
Babes in Bucksnort
Babes in Bucksnort is the sequel to the highly praised The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude. Once again the unconventional bourbon-swilling, chain-smoking nun will spin outrageously funny new tales about the residents of Bucksnort, Wisconsin while she tests the will of a reformed prostitute who just happens to be her Reverend Mother.
Unfortunately there is trouble brewing in the Snortlands. The nasty and notorious town busybody, Priscilla Bunhead, goes on a crusade to stamp out what she calls the gay menace. That's when she convinces her millionaire friend, Mildred Mayflower, to give away her fortune in order to bring the Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead and his Born Again or Burn Forever Disciples for Jesus to town to do the job. It will be an uphill climb for them as the closet doors of many gay people in the Snortlands burst open.
Billy-Bob and his wife, Pinky Poo, will have another battle on their hands when Dimples Dufus, the heiress to the Mayflower fortune, arrives on the scene. They'll also have to reckon with a mysterious woman who channels an entity who challenges the hateful and hypocritical agenda of this spokesman for Jesus.
In between the laughs, Sister Mary Olga continues to dispense nuggets of spiritual wisdom during her classes in Beginner's and Advanced Holiness. Just don't take seats near the flatulent child named Fartley Dinkledorf or his lecherous one-hundred five year-old grandfather, Poopsy. The bottom line is that everyone is welcome in Sister Mary Olga's classes. Join the diverse cast of characters for a joy-ride that will tickle your funny bone until it aches.
