Woman of Ruinous Face

While Breastfeeding is a Bitch, But We Lovingly Do It Anyway becomes a cult hit, I am writing an historical fiction novel about a female psychopath running for office 1912 Denver.  

 

In my reimagining of the early 20thCentury Woman’s Club era, one uncanny woman pushes Denver women to eschew the rules set by male domination, take over local politics, and build the world into a utopia...even if she has to kill someone along the way to do it.  
 

In the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, 1912 Denver is half Wild West, half City Beautiful icon. Denver’s politicos fight over tax rates and corporate rights while the women fight for eight-hour work days, equal property rights, and the resources to survive. 

 

But that is not enough for Bonnie Lipshutz, an uncommonly beautiful woman, an unconventional socialite, and a female psychopath with a plan to reshape Denver’s progressive era politics to her own liking. 

 

While preparing a Women’s Ticket for the upcoming Denver city election, Bonnie’s favorite companion’s husband lashes out. Bonnie has no patience for violent men and takes matters into her own hands. The Assistant District Attorney is already investigating her for a series of arsons and now, when her stalker leaves town suddenly, her Club rival joins the investigation to prove Bonnie is both disruptive and criminal in her methods. 

 

Can Bonnie lead the women of Denver to a Women’s Ticket election victory with the help of her dark side, or will it hinder her from achieving equality in a man's world?
