Book Review – Someone by Alice McDermott

Posted by mcm0704 on September 11, 2016 |

Before posting the review, I just want to take a moment to pause and remember that horrible day when a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States occurred on the morning of September 11, 2001.  As with all horrors that men inflict upon mankind, this one should […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 9, 2016 |

First this meme to start us off with a chuckle. I couldn’t resist. My husband was a minister, frequently wore a white dress, and doused many a child.  And before we move on to the news, don’t forget to enter the YA Back-to-School Giveaway. The last day to enter is September 12. I am one […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 5, 2016 |

First off, I want to wish all my readers in the U.S. a Happy Labor Day. I remember the Labor Day celebrations of my past, mostly a day to go to the corner to watch a parade and mark the end of summer with one last picnic before school started. After I married and joined the Miller […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 30, 2015 |

This is the second day of the garage sale to benefit the Winnsboro Center for the Arts, and response from the community has been great. One of the things I especially love about living in a small town is the willingness of people to work together for the common good; at least most of the […]

The Eye of the Storm…

Posted by mcm0704 on December 29, 2014 |

…. or The Days Between Holidays I remember when I was doing my various newspaper columns these few days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve were always a little strange. It was too early to do New Year’s related material, and Christmas was gone, so… what on earth should we write about? Nothing has changed, […]

Books to Gift

Posted by mcm0704 on December 14, 2014 |

Instead of a review, I thought I would recommend some books if you have readers on your holiday gift list. These are some of the books I’ve read this year – or hope to read next year – as well as a couple from writers I’ve become friends with online. First on my wish list […]

First I want to invite you to visit the Bookbrowsing blog by PJ Nunn, where I am a guest today. I wrote about my experience collaborating on the mystery, Doubletake – the challenges and the fun.  Next, I’m excited to share some news from Terry Odell, author of several mystery series. I especially like her […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on August 29, 2014 |

A recent article in the Dallas Morning News about taking on too much responsibility by Jonathan Look made me stop and think about the difference between responsibility and “response-ability.” He wrote, “If we have the trappings of success, but through our lack of ‘response-ability’ have eliminated the time to enjoy them, has this pressure made […]

Monday Morning Musings

WHAT I’M READING: Hangman by Faye Kellerman. I do love her ongoing series with Detective Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus. I have read almost all of the books since the first in the series, and enjoy spending time with them and their family. WHAT I’M SMILING ABOUT: Some good news on the publishing […]
