About the Author:

Meta Strauss, a native Houstonian, thought she left Texas behind forever when she retired in Sonoma, California in 2005. She began writing short stories about her large extended Texas family and bigger-than-life home state. Some were true and others pure fiction. When the Texas tales became popular with friends, she was encouraged to write a novel. That was the beginning of SAVING EL CHICO. Strauss's work appears in a number of anthologies, in the Sonoma Sun Newspaper, and is featured on the Sonoma Writer's Alliance and on other web sites. She has won several awards for her short stories and often reads her work at local Sonoma events.

Saving El Chico is an electric, character-driven novel with a clever plot and a sense of place so vivid you can feel yourself being whisked away to a charming town dying from drought, fading each day with the lack of rain. This desperation creates fertile ground for cheats and liars to offer false hope to El Chico.
