Revenge can be sweet, but Scooter Nation demonstrated that when brewed in the imagination of A. B. Funkhauser, it’s a laugh riot. Having read late into more than one night, I understand why Scooter Nation was named a “Best Humor” book by Metamorph Publishing.

In this story, funeral directors, Scooter Creighton and Carla Blue are brought from Ms. Funkhauser’s earlier novel, Heuer Lost and Found, to face off against their nemesis, Jocasta Binns. Set in an imaginary Michigan town, this duo is egged

This is a brilliant, irreverent, easy read that draws the reader into a world that is normally taboo.

In the subdued, sedate world of a funeral home we see conflict between staff and management and also outside interference in the guise of the local 'scooter wheelchair brigade' blossoming into what would seem to be all out confrontation to close the business down. With twists and turns in abundance the story behind the need for vengeance comes to light amid the troubles that the morticians Scoot

Watch your toes and your sidewalk fruit stands because SCOOTER NATION is rolling out with gusto!

Funkhauser's second novel is everything you want in a read: laughs, sex, murder, and a senescent scooter gang capable of deeds dirtier than you'd think.

"Scooter Nation" is a great title for an equally great book. As well it's a nice double-entendre. "Scooter" on the one hand hooks us into Scooter Creighton, one of the main characters in Funkhauser's debut tale, "Heuer, Lost and Found." On the other hand, another of the novel's most significant elements involves a fleet of motorized scooters ridden by aggrieved disabled people who zip around protesting both handicapped access and other community political issues.

Like "Heuer", Scooter Nation invo

Where do I begin? First, let me disclose that I read the first novel in this series and love how characters from the first book have made it over into SCOOTER NATION. But with a difference. The characters of Carla and Scooter, funny enough in HEUER LOST AND FOUND but not at the center of it all, return as major characters in SCOOTER. It is interesting to see their backstories become the main story and through it, learn what really makes them tick. It’s not
Book Review originally published here:

When I started reading Scooter Nation, I had no idea what to expect and quite frankly, I’m still a bit shocked by how much fun the book turned out to be. The book starts by introducing a bunch of characters, and finally settles on Scooter Creighton and Carla Moretto Salinger Blue as the main characters. They’re funeral directors, but handling funerals is only one of the struggles they have to get through during the co

A.B. Funkhauser is a pseudonym for an incredibly funny author that I've gotten to know and Scooter Nation is a her second novel. She is real-life funeral director and has produced a dark, yet funny story about the funeral home business.

Scooter Nation is about the nasty goings on of the owners and operators of a family-run funeral home where a messy web of personal and financial relationships provide both intrigue and humour. There is rich group of characters in this story, all with secret pasts

If you ever wondered what went on behind the closed doors of a mortuary, then this books for you. It’s filled with lying, cheating, despicable characters who keep you interested throughout as to what they are going to do next and what their end game really is. There are some people to root for as well though the diabolical ones steal the show.
Funkhauser must have extensive knowledge of the mortuary business from the décor to the embalming process because the detail was exemplary. It is clear the

With a captivating prose, an excellent characterization, and her ability to revitalize the most mundane events with paramount implications, Funkhauser delivers her second book in the Unapologetic Lives series with an extra oomph. Funeral directors Scooter Creighton and Carla Blue from Heuer Lost and Found are in for a surprise after Jocasta Binns, their adversary, takes over operations of the funeral home and announces profound changes.

Egged on by Alma Wurtz, the neighborhood bully, the duo fin

I could not get into this story taking 4 attempts before I finished. Could not find empathy for any characters the plot I found so convoluted and where was the humour?
Honestly this was not an enjoyable read

A.B. Funkhauser is a funeral director, classic car nut and wildlife enthusiast living in Ontario, Canada. Like most funeral directors, she is governed by a strong sense of altruism fueled by the belief that life chooses us and we not it.

“Were it not for the calling, I would have just as likely remained an office assistant shuffling files around, and would have been happy doing so.”
