Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on June 5, 2017 |

I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was very busy. First on Friday I drove to McKinney for the McKinney Book Festival. It was held on Saturday, but I wanted to go early to see some of my kids and be in town for the 8AM set up on Saturday. It was a fun […]

Book #Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on May 19, 2017 |

Last weekend the “Generations” art exhibition opened at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts, and I was so thrilled to see an entire wall taken up with art from my family, starting with my mother. I posted a couple of pictures on Monday, and here is another one. The bed dolls were made by my […]

Inauguration Day, Monkeys & More

Posted by mcm0704 on January 20, 2017 |

For the first time in as long as I can remember, I will not be watching any of the Inauguration ceremony or the celebrations. First off, because I have no local television or cable, having cancelled both several months ago. I know I could stream live coverage on my computer or tablet, but I don’t […]

It’s a Street Party

Posted by mcm0704 on December 29, 2016 |

The week between the holidays gets a bit chaotic for many people, myself included, so I am letting Slim Randles entertain you today with an essay. Jasper and Sarah and all the people in this make-believe world do remind me a bit of folks in my small town. Somehow they are more willing to act on impulse […]

Monday Morning Surprise

Posted by mcm0704 on November 21, 2016 |

I have a surprise guest today. I know, it isn’t Wednesday, but Slim Randles is already scheduled for Wednesday, so I thought I’d introduce you to a fantastic singer.  First I have to say I had not heard of Heather Schmid until I received an e-mail from her publicity folks. I guess because I’m on […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 7, 2016 |

Earlier this week I received a phone call from my niece, Pat, telling me that her father had died a few weeks ago. Somehow in the confusion of the sudden death there was a mix-up in the phone calls, and I was not notified at the time. George Watson was married to my husband’s sister, Mary, […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 30, 2016 |

Before getting into the usual topics on my Friday blog, I wanted to share some exciting news. S&H Publishing is a small publisher with a big heart that releases quality books. I first did business with them when they accepted my story, “To Love Again” for their International collection of short stories –Short & Happy (or not) Now they […]

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 June 27, 2016 |

Readers and writers alike can relate to this meme. There is a great deal of happiness in the creative process and a lot in reading the results of another author’s creative process. Saturday night I was able to go to my first live concert in months. This Ramsay Hunt Syndrome causes visual and auditory problems. […]
