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.

Monday February 13th:

I was enthralled with the Grammys last night but I admit when Downtow Abbey came on I flipped the channel. I love this PBS Classic Mystery Series. If you do not know what I am talking about go to netflix and start with season one. It is well worth your time to watch this series.

With the passing of Whitney Houston and Etta James this year it seems to me we are losing so many great singers, stars and authors that we must support their work and see them while we can because life is as we have always known it to be "Too Short" and somehow these deaths bring the sentiment closer to home this week.

Tomorrow is Valentines Day and whether you support this holiday or not I hope everyone had a nice Tuesday. No make that a 'Terrific Tuesday' I will probably bake a meatloaf and cross stitch. LOL

We had our first real snow overnight and it's supposed to snow, rain freezing rain today but tomorrow the high will be 48 so I am not worried. Personally I like seeing the snow that has gathered on the trees to me this is a peaceful reminder of winter.

Everyone have a great Monday and I hope you're getting lost in a good book this week.




  1. Poor Whitney was on this path for so long - such a waste!


  2. We have lost some wonderful, talented people, but that just makes me appreciate what I have all the more. Terrific Tuesday to you as well.

  3. Downton Abbey is so fantastic, I'm already looking forward to season 3.
