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.

This summer what books and series are you reading? As usual I am reading Carolyn Hart Mysteries but I am also trying to read as many reread Laura Levine Mysteries as possible. The heat is a real killer here in MO this year and last Saturday we got up to 107 for an actual temp.

I really am using the crockpot more this summer. A little while ago I put a roast in the crockpot to have for supper. My daughter and her husband have major car problems right now. Plus she is working late for the next two months so any suggestions on recipes that are simple quick that I can throw in the crockpot (their central air needs work) that an 11 year old and a 4 year old will eat would be good. The boys will eat anything but all my creative energy is going into writing this week.LOL

I miss my yardswing and I hope to have Frank bring it up the next times he comes for a visit. Finally do you have a favorite summer color to wear? Maybe more than one that makes you feel really good when you wear it? Oddly enough this year for me is lime green and I seem to lean towards yellow.

  1. I always love orange and yellow for summer. Bright and happy colors.

    reading a Marian Babson book and a pandemic thriller right now. Oh - and a book about the possible American murders of Jack the Ripper.

    And as for crockpot. Put in meat of your choice. And a jar of salsa of your choice and let cook til it all comes out tender. Can wrap in tortilla with cheese and veggies or whatever. Or put over lettuce for a salad. or on baked potatoes, rice, beans. whatever you want.
