When I moved to California, I was utterly unprepared. What I thought I needed were the basics: driver’s license, proof of residence, etc. It didn’t take long for me to realize I was in for a wild ride. What I thought was simply a move to a new state felt much more like a detour into a foreign country.


What I should have packed:

-Detective license

-DNA test strips

-Video camera

-Tape recorder

-Camera with professional zoom lens

-Law degree
-A Smith & Wesson
-A trail of gluten-free breadcrumbs to find my way back to my home state



Allison Diedrick is a creative author on and off the written page. Scripting her own life, she developed a perseverance of moving forward when literally moving back to her home state. She changed states, lifestyles, and careers, and moved seven times within two years. What didn't remain constant, became obstacles, and only with faith did they transform into opportunities. In her words, "Moving forward brought me closer to my creator."



"With playful wording and sublime imagery throughout the entire story, she helps me to regard my own “wrinkles as the roadmaps of my life.” - Renee Schreindl, Editor


"This real estate story puts you on the edge of your chair and in a state of disbelief. If your favorite genre is mystery, comedy, thriller, or drama, this book is for you." - Jeff Johns, eXp Realty


"I shared many laughs with Ally throughout the book. I am finding out for the first time what really happened behind closed doors and the strength she had to endure this roller coaster ride." - Derek Heer
