The endearingly bitter writer, Amy Gallup has happily isolated herself from the world spending the last two decades teaching and reviewing - she's done a lot of thinking...but very little writing.
On an unassuming morning, in her slippers, Amy trips in her backyard, goes head-over-heels, and into the side of a birdbath.
The hospital clears her of head injury - so Amy returns home.
When a local reporter shows up for a scheduled interview - Amy is not quite herself.
The article paints Amy as a the zen-goddess of writing, publishing...and life.
Her bizarre interview was interpreted as the rambling of a true genius.
But all that really happened was: Amy fell down! The next thing she knows, friends and fans are coming out of the woodwork.
Suddenly Amy is on radio shows, keynoting a major publishing event, and guiding a local writers' retreat.
But the strangest thing of all: Amy starts to write.
