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.

Quiting Smoking

Hi Everyone,

On Monday I am going to quit smoking. I hope that this time it sticks. This time there will be a reward I am going back to school if this one sticks. Let's hope it sticks.


Now I have a good attitude about quitting smoking this time around. What usually drives me back to the cigs is something big happens in our family. Right now all is well with everyone. I just need everyone to play nice and no major upsets for the next three weeks.


I have projects lined up and things to do so that will help. My only problem is that I have this voice in the back of my mind that I am not as creative (especially in writing books) as I am when I am smoking. So I have to murder that little voice....and not give it a voice any more.

Truth be told I get more stitching done when I don't smoke than ANY other time.


So this is the topic for today's blog.





  1. Good luck and when the time is right it will just happen.
