Alana Nicole Sholar was born as Alan Sholar in 1961. One of three brothers, Alan was part of a close-knit, church-going family who lived and worked on several now-famous horse farms in the Bluegrass region of central Kentucky.
After years of lonely struggle with gender confusion and self-acceptance, Sholar legally changed his name from Alan to Alana Nicole in 2005, an important step in a lifelong journey of gender discovery-a journey that is documented in the engaging memoir, Hung in the Middle.
Hung in the Middle: A Journey of Gender Discovery is Alana Nicole Sholar's fascinating, heart-wrenching life story-a story full of real-life lessons of gender diversity in 20th century rural America, and a story about searching for, and finding, true love.
With pure Kentucky-bred storytelling that will have you laughing one moment and crying the next, author Alana Nicole Sholar—a transgendered individual living in 20th century rural America—shares her journey of gender discovery and her search for love.
