Two releases in one month, look at me go. For some odd reason my career always patterns like this, when it rains it pours and all that jazz. Probably a byproduct of my incredibly erratic and disorganized mind. I'll bet there's a sign inside my head, abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
Speaking of which... yes I did indeed stage Laundry Hag 3 in a haunted house. Imagine, Maggie, Neil, Leo and Sylvia on a ghost hunt. And not just any ghost, a bean nighe, which is gaelic for "washer woman." I know, right? The laundry hag vs. the washer woman, like it was kismet. Or a byproduct of my endless obsession with all things Scottish, Scooby Doo and too much free time. So now you know where a writer gets her ideas, at least this writer.
The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag: All Washed Up
Now available on amazon
Maggie Phillips is fine—just ask her. So what if two psychos tried to do her in and her business is all but dead, she never wanted to be the laundry hag to begin with, so why should she mourn her tattered reputation? With spring comes a fresh start, garage sale season and the birth of her brother’s first child. Life goes on even if cleaning has lost its luster and the sight of her scarred hands brings back horrific memories.
Help is on the way, whether she wants it or not. When Maggie’s mother-in-law asks her to assist with renovations to their project house in upstate New York, she smells a rat. Matters become murkier when Laura casually tells the former laundry hag to “see to that pesky ghost”, like the phantom is ring around the bathtub. But both Neil and Sylvia are eager to undertake the zany task and really, what else does she have to do?
How about solve a two decade old murder, find a few long lost relatives, fix her mental hang-ups and reconnect with the husband she’s pushed away. And if she has any time to spare, maybe she can even survive a pissed-off apparition and keep it from finishing the job the last two killers started Third time’s the charm…right?
