Confessions of the Sausage Queen is beyond a doubt the craziest comedy I've written to date. The book stars Mandy Minhauser, a small town girl who's got a ton of heart. The ensemble cast is quirky to the max, from Mandy's stiletto wearing margarita drinking Gran Lila, to her eastern thought, guitar playing, on-again off-again husband Randy, to her ex-delinquent cop brother-in-law, to her shopaholic sister Mindy, to a whole world of friends with their quirks and foibles, this lovable band of kook ...more

Ute is a great writer - particularly skillful with dialog. The book is first person and the lead Mandy is likable, which is a harder trick that you'd think. It's so easy to start to dislike a lead when you know every thought in his or her head! The cast of characters is almost never ending - it reminded me of a Carl Hiaasen novel with all the goofy well constructed personalities. There's a ton of humor and a little intrigue - all-in-all fun roller coaster ride!

Award winning author Ute Carbone pronounces her first name Oohtah, but doesn't spell it that way. She lives with her husband in Southern NH, where she spends her days drinking coffee, eating chocolate, walking in the woods, and dreaming up stories.

There's been a long list of things I've wanted to be. Some of them were fanciful- ballerina, trapeze artist, world class ski racer. Some more serious-d
