Change Their Crazy Ways

L. Maddox Author Interview

Macon Me Crazy tells your story about growing up with a dysfunctional family and learning about how they have survived since the days of being on a cotton plantation in Macon Georgia. Why was this an important book for you to write?

I felt like my personal story was worth telling so I decided to share it with the world.

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

My family was able to change their crazy ways when they got to know God.

I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

Writing about the abuse I endured when I was a kid was a little heart wrenching. To this day, I sometimes find myself avoiding the topic.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?

If you grew up in a chaotic family, do not repeat the patterns from the past.

Growing up in the streets of Philadelphia during the 1970s wasn’t easy for a young girl named Lena. In a bizarre way, her mother Francine could dish out affection as quickly as she could dish out terror. Coming from a dysfunctional family of drama, Lena is confronted with the reality that she must survive this turmoil and endure the hardship. While Lena visits her grandmother Florence who moved from Philadelphia to North Carolina, she began searching for a misplaced ring when she stumbles upon a hidden family journal in the backyard shed. As Lena begins to read, she realizes it’s a collection of short stories that exposes her family’s survival, dark secrets, and funny moments that can be traced generations back to the cotton plantation in Macon, Georgia. And the chaos continues after the family migrated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the 1940s.
