About M.L. Strickland

I was born in Cleveland and grew up in Canton, Ohio. I attended college, married and gave birth to two sons in New York City in the 1960's. Divorced and remarried, I moved to Florida in the 70's, where I enjoyed living near the water and had many adventures. My daughter was born in 1987, and I received a B.A. in Creative Writing from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg in 1998. Since then, I have been writing, editing, and having more adventures.

A look back at the 70's...hippies, weed, music, women's lib, the counter culture...Stories told through the eyes of a young single mother living in the Gulf Coast of Florida, of her encounters with an eclectic group of friends and freaks....stories that will entertain you, make you think, and give you a sense of nostalgia, no matter where you were in the 70's. a terrific read !

Review by: J. Leslie Glick on Feb. 12, 2013 :
The Sunrise-2000 is an 8-chapter novella, but it is also a collection of 8 short stories. Even though the chapters are all related and are presented in a logical order, any of the stories can be read and enjoyed out of sequence or without reading the others. The book truly reflects the post-beat generation counterculture that was shaped by the defining political controversies in America during the 1960s and early 1970s. Beginning in 1975 and ending in 2000, It is about individuals living on the edge, trying to get their acts together. It is about their momentary ups and extended downs and their need to unlearn what they have learned in order to move on with their lives. The Sunrise-2000 is both poignant and funny, with a few surprises thrown in.
