Alexandra Allred, author of Damaged Goods:

"I would love to introduce you to a most unusual book. It is part fiction, part non-fiction. It is a powerful book of environmentalism, big industry and corrupt politicians and outrageous southern women. It is the story of my hometown -- the very one Erin Brokovich called me about and said, "Get the hell out." This is my solution ...
This summer, all anyone has been talking about is the book Fifty Shades. I never imagined I would have a connection to it as my works are more girl-power kind of books, not seduction and submission. But as sure as the Fifty Shades publishers knew sex would sell, they believe humor and social consciousness will sell Damaged Goods."

Alexandra was also the first U.S. champion to the US women's bobsled team in 1994, named Athlete of the Year by the United States Olympic Committee, made international news because she was also pregnant at the time. Wrote a book, featured in Sports Illustrated, went on to television and media print, blogged for the Olympics,she played women's professional football and was the first American - male or female - to test drive the Volvo Gravity Car.

The story behind Damaged Goods comes for her own hometown experiences when her son got sick because of the air quality in her hometown. Listen in to hear her story..
