The Monster, the Mentalpause and Me is a satirical look at the life of 52-year-old Molly McIntosh. Molly is third stage Mentalpausal, with a bitter and twisted womb. She has to contend with spontaneous facial hair growth, forgetfulness, and the Wicked Witch of the East-rogen occupying her guest bedroom...her mother-in-law, AKA 'The Monster'. Molly's patience is tested on a daily basis as she pits her wits against her scheming nemesis, Annabel Lextor. Molly's newly retired Mr Husband seems oblivious to his mother's malevolent ways, as Molly struggles on dealing with obnoxious neighbours, crazy work colleagues, and deranged octogenarians. The book spans a hilarious year in Molly's life. Ending with the realisation that one of Monster's husbands might not in fact be dead. Follow us on Facebook: THE MENTALPAUSE.
