Imagine Erma Bombeck, Roseanne Barr, Marge Simpson and Mother Teresa lunching--their conversation would sound as if it had been extracted from Mama With A Blue Face. Mama With A Blue Face is a creative non-fiction memoir in which Huddle has unspooled the last 20 years of her mothering career, beginning with the birth of her twins. Huddle, a visual artist, has packed Mama With a Blue Face with her original, full-color images of her paintings and photographs, which sets the book apart from other memoirs. Huddle said of the book: "One day I was fatigued--beyond exhaustion. I blew out a puff of air that lifted my bangs off my forehead and said, "I'm so tired my head will roll right off my shoulders." "What do you do all day that could make you that tired?" inquired one of my teens. Surely that was a rhetorical question. That was when I decided to leave a written record."
