Angie Ricketts holds a master's degree in Social Psychology/Human Relations and an undergraduate degree in Sociology. She worked part-time for the American Red Cross in Germany in the 1990's but since then her formal education has been used to navigate the politics and personalities that come with being an officer's wife. Her husband remains on active duty but transitioned to Homeland Defense in 2012. She lives in Colorado Springs, CO.
"Outspoken in her critique of the "Army machine," Ricketts celebrates the "secret sisterhood" of soldiers' wives, defiantly and desperately battling for survival. A blunt, bold debut memoir." --Kirkus "If you've ever wanted to know what life on an army base is like, you have to read this amazingly honest memoir. Though Ricketts is a self-described military "Real Housewife," her experience is nothing like the cliched stuff you see on TV. We were completely immersed in her world." -PureWow
