“Flashing Bugs” by Whitney Kerr Jr

Kansas City in 1993 was a turbulent place. Devastating floods ravaged the region, the local real estate industry reeled from the effects of the savings and loan crisis, and four-year-old Charlotte Kerr battled for her life against a rare form of cancer.

Flashing Bugs is the true account as seen through the eyes of Charlotte’s father, a struggling real estate broker and an upland hunting fanatic. It’s spoken from the heart – and straight from the heartland.

The story offers up a Midwestern perspective on life, death, and adversity from a place where the pavement only goes so far while the journey continues… where people still have a close connection to the land and all its finality.

What People Are Saying

“Engaging, honest, and soulful, Flashing Bugs is a riveting meditation on family life in a time of crisis. Should be required reading for any parent who’s ever wondered how they’re going to make it through the next day, not to mention the next year. I couldn’t put it down.”

-Whitney Terrell, author of The King of Kings County
