mister mayhem was born of my fascination with obituaries. I used to collect them from the newspaper. weird ones were my favorite, weird ones or the kind that made you wish you knew the person. even my grandmother's bowling buddies would bring me obituaries. the weirder the better. I have a scrapbook of them. my first meet mr. mayhem series were from these. my nephew james graced the cover, he wasn't really a mister then-he was only 6 when I used his face as the poster boy for mayhem.
then I met mr. mayhem himself. i married him and the mayhem family welcomed me. these are their stories, they aren't mine, their tongue is in my mouth.
