Mar 11, 2009"From Angela Hunt" MANY years ago, I was introduced to Tanzel Rousey by my author friend Lisa Samson. First, we marveled over her name--it's so unique and so is she. Then I discovered that Tanzel was a church secretary in Macon Georgia, with a flair for humor and a dash of outlandishness. She's "out there," but only in the nicest way! (You have to ask her about the typos she has personally put in church bulletins.) Tanzel fell in love with the Heavenly Daze books, and co-author Lori Copeland and I had established a yahoo group for readers of that series. (You can join, too, if you haven't already. Just send an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org"). Soon after the yahoo group's formation, I asked Tanzel if she'd be "moderator" for the group--a leadership role she accepted and has maintained with great style and diligence for about six years. Now Tanzel's getting ready to retire from her secretarial job, and she's written and... More > published a book! Knowing her, it's going to be wonderful. You can read all about her book at www.tanzel.org. Best of all, you can download a copy of her book and begin reading it TODAY! I love Tanzel and I know you will, too. And no, she didn't ask me to post this. My testimonials are completely unsolicited. :-) ~~Angela Hunt Posted By Angela to A Life in Pages at 8/17/2007 10:01:00 AM< Less
Oct 12, 2008"Death with a Dash of Life, by Tanzel Rousey" This look back at life was so engrossing that I read it completely through in one sitting. But then again, I am the "Lying Polecat" brother named Jim the author writes about in the book. The author (Tanzel) is my OLDER sister. Tanzel takes us back to simpler times. She shows us that sometimes the little things of life that are hard for us to let go of are just that.. little things. She also reminds us that the only real hope we have as we look back or ahead in our lives is the hope found in God our Creator through a relationship with His son Jesus Christ. He is the only source of comfort as we face our own cemetery encounters. Tanzel has that delightful inside insight because she does not just "Talk the Talk", but she actually "Walks the Walk" consistently in her own daily life. So...get yourself a copy of the book, grab a cool glass of lemonade, sit back in a cozy rocker on the porch and laugh... More > and cry with Tanzel's antics, humor, and a DASH of her own humanity. May your own past hurts experience healing as you participate in hers. May your own past memories rekindled in this book bring warmth in your present as you walk this memory lane with her. Also look for her second book to be published through Lulu shortly. Thanks for listening and God Bless.. Rev. Jim Honeycutt AKA "Lying Pole Cat" AKA "No good younger brother" Mt.Washington, KY< Less
Aug 22, 2007"Death with a Dash of LIfe by Tanzel Rousey" Once I started reading, I could not put it down. I laughed til I cried at so many "ya ya" moments. Tanzel's painful moments brought tears to my eyes, too. I was surprised to find out that the "lying polecat" became a minister. I loved Granny Chicken, and can just picture her sitting there on her porch, with her ankles crossed, chewing and spitting into that tin can. How blessed Tanzel has been to have had all of these adventures,and known all these wonderful people during her "dash," and how fortunate we, the readers, are, that she is sharing them with us. I never thought of the dashes on tombstones before reading this. It is up to each of us to make those dashes count for something because we don't know how long or how short they will be.
