Annette Fix published numerous articles and editorials in her high school newspaper, located in a town full of trailer parks and meth labs. She moved on to write a campus lifestyle column for a community college newspaper until her 4.0 grade-point average propelled her into a private university.
Once there, she worked 40 hours a week, attended school fulltime, and cared for her beautiful toddler son (who was the direct result of a nightclub drinking and dancing accident). Annette dropped out of college 8 units short of graduation because she refused to rewrite her thesis. She still believes absurdist theatre is a vital contribution to world dramaturgy.
Annette went on to have grand aspirations of writing the next great American novelty. On her journey toward that lofty goal, she often found inspiration while busting her tail working as an exotic dancer to support her son and feed her writing habit.
She is currently designing ancillary merchandise such as T-shirts, chocolate scented perfume, and an emaciated action figure to promote her memoir, The Break-Up Diet. These products will be sold in the alley after her spoken-word readings in Los Angeles. Her local bookstore already served her with a restraining order for holding Meet-the-Author sessions in the ladies’ room before she had any tangible products.
Annette currently lives in a state of confusion about life, relationships, and why the GMO-labeling proposition didn’t pass. Her dog, Buddy, a Shepherd mix, is the only thing that keeps her sane. Annette was empty-nested by Wonderboy, her now 24-year-old photographer son, who she regularly stalks on Facebook. Wonderboy is her magnum opus, but The Break-Up Diet: A Memoir is her first book.
