Flawed Happiness

By Cori Tadrus

General fiction, Women's fiction, Romance | Paperback, eBook


Athena Wallace has spent the first thirty years of her life desperately trying to be perfect. But as her sassy, unfiltered best friend, Nadine, points out, "being perfect ain't got shit to do with being happy." With this reality weighing heavily on her, Athena takes on a new assignment at the magazine where she works as a columnist doing an expose on how six strangers seek happiness through the exotic venues of Manhattan nightlife. Side by side with an eclectic cast of characters - including a millionaire attorney who moonlights as a drag queen and a motorcycle-riding grandma with a 'fuck-it' list - Athena embarks on a soulful, and often satirical, journey to find her happiness. As she discovers, sometimes you have to look outside of yourself in order to become the person you are meant to be.




Cori Tadrus was born and raised in Syracuse, NY. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Syracuse University. She spent most of her twenties working as a refugee case worker by day and a bartender by night. Although passionate about this work, at the age of 30, she decided it was time to get a 9-5 job that paid the bills and did not require so much of her time and heart. She pursued a career in finance but it left her feeling empty and uninspired. She found respite in writing a story about a character named Athena who, like her, was seeking a more fulfilled life. A few years later, Cori married an active duty Army Officer. When she was nine months pregnant with her daughter, she left her job to join him in his travels. With change came perspective, and the ability to look inside of herself to discover what she truly wanted to be: an author. When she is not writing, Cori enjoys mixing and drinking cocktails, listening to spoken word poetry and soulful music, impromptu dance parties with her daughter, and eating dessert.
