Lawrence Frightengale Investigates
by Aidee Ladnier & Debussy Ladnier

Television horror host Lawrence Frightengale and his leading lady, the glamorous drag performer Myrna Boy, find themselves racing against the clock when the theft of a classic car bound for the Out & About parade threatens to be a showstopper for Lawrence’s career.

My DH and I had so much fun writing this.  He’s a fan of horror movie hosts and loves really bad horror flicks of the seventies.  I’m more of a fan of classic mystery movies like The Thin Man  or The Mad Miss Manton where the amateur detectives juggle social parties with solving crime.  Together, we tried to recreate that feel with our hero Lawrence Frigtengale in his rather effete vampire makeup, and his partner both on screen and off, Myrna Boy, a local celebrity at the Falsehoods Cabaret.  They use their wits and their panache to solve the case of the missing Frightmobile but also manage to reconnect with a hero from Lawrence’s childhood.
