Enjoy some Mayhem & Magic!

Our blog is meant to evoke fun with the magic of myths, folklore, movies and the mayhem of murder and madness. We have to keep it interesting so if you like different genres of movies and books then you're at the right blog. Our authors are a wide range of experts and our readers know what is top of the line in their favorite genres. Sometimes we post recipes that might be fun to try if a culinary author has one in her book that we think is especially yummy or one that Terri and I have created and want to share with you. Enjoy Guest Blogger Alice Duncan's monthly muse on her books and writing mysteries.

Plus you won't want to miss our book reviews, author interviews or our guest bloggers. So grab your favorite beverage then join us for some magic and mayhem! The good news is that you don't have to leave the house or your comfy chair. We have something for everyone's taste and every month we have a different topic for our bloggers: ones we feel that might be useful in your own writing and reader points of view. Not to mention, life in general. So join us and be sure to have a notebook handy as your to-be-read pile will grow as you add books, recipes, movies and t.v. series you won't want to miss. Not to mention folktales, myths or ideas you may wish to explore. Be careful what you wish for because on mayhemandmagic2 you just might find it.

My true confession is that I sometimes one in on one series and I HAVE to read all the books I can in that series. This has happened again with Laura Levine's mystery series. I've spent the better part of two months finding and reading all I can in this series. I love Prosac and since I lost my own two cats this past spring I cannot get enough of Prosac (Prosac is her cat), I love Jaine Austen's parent's especially their emails to her and I suspect my daughter could relate to that part if she read mysteries and if she read this series.
I have been in a better mood because of this series espcially in the last month. Authors your books do make a difference and often can be the difference between a terrible day and good day. Laura Levine's series helped me get over my grief of my cats and I couldn't thank her enough she is a wonderfully funny and uplifting writer and one who deserves to be recognized for her talent.

I hope everyone let's the good times roll today but if that isn't possible then read this series. It may not have the same impact on you that it had on me but it is still a good dose of happiness between the covers.



  1. This really is a fun series - I am two behind now though...


  2. I've read this series and those emails have me laughing so hard. Good choice for a pick-me up

  3. I've only read two of the series, but I fully agree with you.
