Title: Suburban Luchador: The Cul-de-sac Chronicles
His minivan is his chariot. His mower is his weapon. Enter the whimsical world of suburbia’s favorite underdog.
Meet the average Joe who’s a father to three, a husband to one… a hero to all. When he’s not fighting crime in his fighter-jet-cloaked-as-a-minivan, he teaches high school and patrols the ‘hood for story material.
In Suburban Luchador: The Cul-de-sac Chronicles, an ordinary guy conjures up extraordinary tales about his family, marriage, and teacher job. He’s the man who’s making mortgages, meatloaf, and the middle-class sexy again.
This is the anthem of those who envision mowing and mopping as legendary movie scenes. These comically self-deprecating short stories will inspire you to take a fresh look at the wondrous, valiant and touching moments in everyday life.
Dive into Suburban Luchador: The Cul-de-sac Chronicles and ride shotgun on a domestic road trip of epic proportions.
–Abigail’s Targeted Tip:
Humor is all about balance. Be mindful of when, where, and how often you add moments of relatability and ridiculousness.
