The knockers I am referring to are not the Bikini Beach babes of the 4th of July parade as you had hoped. It's even better. Local Kirklander and author, Ellyn Oaksmith (photo), just self-published her first book called "KNOCKERS." Ellyn used to be a full-time screenwriter in LA (credits include "The Secret Lives of Fish") before her husband and large local family lured her back to the Great Northwest. This is her first book whose idea was inspired by some social realizations after her second daughter was born. She had lost her baby weight quickly and the typically flat-chested author was on a cruise and quickly noticed that her baby-induced busty bikini body got her lots of attention. "It changes the way you act or feel about yourself. It was empowering." So the KNOCKERS idea was born.
KNOCKERS is about a young woman, Molly, who, through a surgical error receives nwanted breast implants. Furious, she schedules surgery to have them removed, only to find out that the implants begin talking to her. The implants, Max and Louise, give her great advice about her burgeoning love life although they rarely agree and are both highly opinionated and belligerent. Through Max and Louise, Molly learns to trust her own instincts and falls for the most unlikely of men.
You can download KNOCKERS onto your Kindle here. Ellyn is now working on another comedic novel CUL DE SAC, and a kid's book, THE WEIRD KID, so I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of her! Congrats, Ellyn. ~j
