“Wow!  RED BOOTS & ATTITUDE!  What a rowdy, raucous clamor of women’s voices Fanning & Flatau have collected in this snazzy anthology of Texas women’s writing.  Nothing staid or ho-hum here.  These feisty women speak from the heart and from all corners of Texas culture, telling their stories with passion and power.  RED BOOTS & ATTITUDE is a testament to the strength, compassion and wisdom of all women.”

“RED BOOTS is a dance across Texas written by a press secretary, an office manager, a poet laureate, historians, teachers, a pathologist, and a couple of police officers, among others–many different voices, but all engaging. While most of there authors are well known and widely published to see them in each other’s company and read of experiences set in Hong Kong, Belton, Tehran, and Dallas, is to appreciate the diversity and energy of this far-flung state. Fanning and Flatau have given us a rich treasure.”
