Women in Black - New Book
Very soon I'll have a new book published from Lisa Hagan Books (Lisa being my agent). Its title: Women in Black: The Creepy Companions of the Mysterious M.I.B.
Over at Mysterious Universe you can find an article that outlines some of the things the book touches on. I'll update things when I have an exact release date for WIB.
And here are the opening paragraphs of the Mysterious Universe article:
Coming very soon from Lisa Hagan Books is a follow-up book to my 2015 release, Men in Black: Personal Stories and Eerie Adventures. The title of the new one: Women in Black: The Creepy Companions of the Mysterious M.I.B. It’s a book which – like my 3 books on the MIB – demonstrates that the popular image of the WIB and the MIB being “secret agents” of some equally secret agency is very far from the reality of the situation. They’re way stranger.
Certainly, in the world of on-screen entertainment the portrayal of the MIB and the WIB as employees of a top-secret, black-budget-style organization was presented most famously in the blockbuster 1997 movie, Men in Black, starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The movie, of course, focuses primarily on the two main characters (Agents J & K). However, there’s also the character of Laurel Weaver. She’s a Deputy Medical Examiner, played by Linda Fiorentino. In the final minutes of the movie, she’s recruited into that aforementioned black-budget agency and becomes Agent L, a definitive WIB.
