The Rapture? A War? None of the Above?

Posted by mcm0704 on January 10, 2020 |

The news over the weekend, and through much of this week, has been full of reports about the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was  commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and […]

Chasing Windmills

Posted by mcm0704 on December 13, 2019 |

Today I’m sharing a column I wrote back in the mid 80s for the Texas Catholic Newspaper where I was a regular columnist. I found this copy when I was digging through some old folders looking for something else, and I was surprised and dismayed to see that much of what I wrote back then […]

Books Make Great Gifts

Posted by mcm0704 on December 6, 2019 |

My whole family are avid readers, and we often gift each other with books, especially at this holiday season. It’s an extra bonus when we can get an autographed book, and the ones I have reside on a special shelf in my bookcase. When I moved, almost two years ago now, I had to downsize […]

Happy day after Thanksgiving everyone. Are you as stuffed as the turkey was and lounging in front of the television, not venturing out to the stores this Black Friday? I’m not stuffed, but I’m still not going out. I’ll be sharing time with my daughter-in-law putting up her Christmas tree. Then later going to my […]

What Do We Owe Veterans?

Posted by mcm0704 on November 11, 2019 |

Every year on Veterans Day, I’ve always started my blog by taking a moment to say thanks to the members of my family who have served in the military: My husband, my daughter, my son, and my brother. My daughter, Dany, was in the Army and son, David, was in the Marines. They spent many […]

My First Bouchercon

Posted by mcm0704 on November 5, 2019 |

What an experience! The Sunday before Bouchercon 2019 started I could hardly walk. I had horrible muscle spasms in my back, and I was so afraid I’d have to cancel out, but a couple of days of rest and some good meds later, I was set to go. I still have the Trigeminal nerve pain […]
