Flying Fish?

Please help me welcome Gwen Mayo, half of the writing team of Gwen Mayo and Sarah Glenn who penned Murder on the Mullet Express, which I reviewed last Sunday. I thought the little details about the trains and the steam engines rang very true in the book, and here’s why: As a certified locomotive engineer, and […]

Posted by mcm0704 on April 21, 2017 |

So, this morning when I came into my office to work on a blog, the ending for a short story I’d been working on popped into my head. I opened the story, thinking to just add some notes, but the narrative, and dialogue, was flowing, so I went with the flow. Almost two hours later, […]

This is another except from my WIP, Evelyn Evolving. It picks up from the one I posted a couple of weeks ago, introducing my grandmother, Regina. My mother loved pansies, and when I was a kid I would buy her some every Spring and plant them by the front porch of our house. She loved […]

Today I’d like to let you know about a couple of new books and great deals. And what goes better with a good book than a nice cup of tea. Please help yourself. I like mine with a bit of cream and honey, and I love this teacup. My mother-in-law collected pretty teacups and I […]

Unless you are one of the few people who love the time changes that we get to experience twice a year, please take a moment to join me in a huge groan.  I particularly dislike the spring-forward time change, as if we are to jump with joy because it feels like 6 a.m. when we […]
