Attention fans of Monte Python, Mel Brooks and Something About MaryLucy’s Got a Lot of ‘Splaining to Do is a not-quite-slapstick, full-on-humor story of quirky characters, fantasy, and  romance teamed with a huge dollop of magical realism.

 In order to win their wins, apprentice angels Coco and Ace have to make sure that Lucy Carson and Jamie Randolph fall in love—a job that requires a ton of imagination and a miracle.    

A Las Vegas teacher with a proclivity for all things retro, Lucy’s dream is to have a baby.  But considering her sex life has been a big fat zero for a very long time, a baby shower seems highly unlikely. In her world, men are pond scum—that’s courtesy of her lower than a rattlesnake’s bell ex- hubby.    

Jamie is a tabloid journalist whose only goal in life is to return to mainstream reporting.  But  then his life turns topsy-turvy when the neophyte angels convince—read that bribe—him into getting involved in their hare-brained scheme.  Lucy turns out to be mighty appealing, but she’s strictly off-limits.  Getting smote—whatever the heck that means—is not his idea of a good time.   

 So what will it take for these two very different people to fall in love?  How about a miracle called parthenogenesis—fertilization without the benefit of sperm.  Far-fetched—yep, but that’s why it’s miraculous.   Set in a Vegas that tourists rarely see, with a cast of eccentric characters—a   Transylvanian hit man, a drag queen named Merry Chino Cherry, and a devil’s minion who moonlights as a personal injury lawyer—this story has all the elements of a rollicking good time in Sin City.
