I write outrageous fiction featuring women who take charge of their lives by finding unusual solutions to life’s every day problems. My first, novel is titled, To Kill an Armchair Husband, a dark comedy. The story is funny, sad, and surrealistic. It explores marital themes like communication, guilt, and forgiveness. Hey, hasn’t every married woman wanted to kill her spouse once or twice? A fleeting thought constitutes a yes.
Anyway, my heroine Charlene, Charlie for short, becomes fed up with her sports obsessed husband, Billy. A few years into their marriage, he transformed from a lusty fun guy into a lump. He now spends all his time with his three mistresses, a leather armchair, the big screen TV, and the sports broadcasting industry.
Charlie rules out divorce as an option. It’s messy, expensive, and it isn’t a permanent solution. Instead, she writes a list of the pros and cons for murder. The pros kick the cons’ butt. Still, murder IS a drastic solution. She gives Billy one last chance to redeem himself. She administers an oral test. Billy bombs it big time. A determined Charlie begins making her plans to off him using rather … unconventional methods.
That’s the premise. For more info, check out my website at http://www.terriweeding.com
