Halloween week

Halloween Week:
I have to admit this is one of my favorite week's of the year. I love fall but Halloween week seems to add just the right amount of mystery. I am having so much fun watching all the mystery movies and reading a really fun Halloween Mystery. Death of a neighborhood Witch by Laura Levine.
But to be honest my horror that scares me to death is not spooky mysteries. it's more real life than that topics like spiders, serial killers, tornadoes and other natural elements of mother nature. Those are the things that scare me to death.
I have been job hunting this week. I haven't worked in twenty-two years. This also scares me to death. So much has changed since I filled out a job application. Spooky doesn't begin to cover it. However, I will say that it is becoming easier each time I meet a new challenge. I have renewed confidence in myself.
Okay because I am me I will ask...
What scares you?


  1. I would have to say I'm scared of bugs because I have trouble killing them especially one that crunches. Another thing that scares me is going somewhere when I don't know anyone.

  2. @Ladybear -- When I was in Anguilla, Brie had a horrid bug in her shower and I bravely killed it for her (it did go crunch). She was very grateful and I got a drink out of it! :)


  3. As for my fears - fanatics of any sort would be the main one,

    but on another note - I HATE heights

Upside Down Post

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
