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.

Hobbies and Classics

Hobbies and Classics

I am going to ask the age old question..."What is your favorite hobby? Why do you like this hobby and is there a hobby you would

like to try that you haven't yet had time to actually work it in your schedule?

I am also asking you to tell us some of your favorite classic mysteries? What classic do you never tire of reading?

I really like the Nero Wolfe Series and of course Agatha Christie series. There are others I like but these series I

keep returning to in times of stress.

Every summer I reread Carolyn Hart's "Death On Demand Series" even though it's not yet considered a classic series.

I am finding more and more that I love taking the time to read vintage mysteries. In this genre I am still discovering new to me


I think I will start the Ellery Queen Mysteries this fall......




  1. Love cross stitching and tarot as hobbies.

    For mysteries - Mary Daheim's B&B series never tires me. And Stephanie Plum and Bubbles Yablonsky always make me laugh.

    WANT to get back and read more of the Little Sisters mysteries soon


  2. Right now my favorite hobby which does not include reading is quilting.

    Not a fan of classic mysteries, but love Stephanie Plum series.
