You might say she’s stabbed, shot and strangled her way into a business she says is perfect for stay-at-home moms.
Rae Walaska, 29, of Port Orchard started Murder & Mayhem: Murder Mystery Parties a few months ago and already has gone from whodunits in her home to some big-time public fundraisers.
Not bad for a Navy wife who is busy at home with a 2-year-old, who hasn’t been in the area very long and who must soon leave.
That said, Walaska is focused on building her business, in which she writes customized mysteries for party-goers to solve. Themes might be pirates or the Wild West. Venues might be a restaurant, church or business.
Her dream is to grow Murder & Mayhem into a Mary Kay-style national network, where people looking to augment their family incomes can plan parties on their own schedule and with her help, wherever she is.
