Shubra Ramchand, an Indian-born Texan struggle to find her identity in the plastic suburbs of Houston. Steward Cruise, a college professor faced with the unexpectedly daunting challenge of delivering a large sum of money to an old blues musician living in the 5th Ward ghetto. Follow these and other characters as they learn the hard way just how bad off it is to be Too Poor For Texas.

Joe Donn Martin was not born in Texas, and that really pisses him off. He likes to launch into long, rambling lectures on Texas history and what it means to be Texan, but you can shut him right up by saying, “Well, you weren’t born here, so what do you know?” And don’t let him get away with telling you that he “got here as soon as he could.” He stole that from a bumper sticker.When he’s not plagiarizing bumper stickers, Joe works as a litigation support analyst at a national law firm conveniently located across the street from the Houston Public Library.
