Bill Durmer is in over his head. In Midlife Mouse, the debut novel from filmmaker Wayne Franklin, Durmer, an underachieving genius, runs away to Walt Disney World in the mother of all midlife crises.

Led by a series of bizarre encounters, a hyper-caffeinated delusion and a mysterious prophecy, Bill goes to the Magic Kingdom seeking his destiny. But a group of Disney haters will do almost anything to stop him. Pirates and princesses, morticians, moms and man-beasts, spacemen and psychos all have a stake in Bill's future ... and those are the good guys. This is not how he planned to spend his summer vacation.

A genre mash-up of contemporary fantasy, Southern lit and mystery, Midlife Mouse builds upon real Disney history to create a fictional mythology for the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Oh, and there's a mouse in there, too.

Wayne Franklin grew up in the suburbs of Mobile, Alabama, the son of a mechanic from rural Escambia County and an office manager from Fairhope - the inspiration for Decent Chance. Despite this very Southern background, and the fact that he is the creator of the blog real-southern.com, Wayne still has no discernible accent. A career commercial director and editor, Wayne co-founded the Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham and is the co-producer/director of the award-winning documentary Duke & The King. Midlife Mouse is his debut novel.
