Friday Morning

Good Morning,

My Friday is starting better than the whole week was for me. First everyone stay safe this weekend. Second I hope you have something or someone to smile about this weekend.

My weekend plans are to wait out the storms and rain which they now say will stop Saturday afternoon. Great news for southeast Kansas and I hope to be able to walk, work in the yard but my main goals this weekend are to cross stitch. I have neglected my stitching and well it is showing by way of my grumpy moments.

On a positive note: THE WOLFE WIDOW was great to read, as was COVER STORY  both excellent books to pull me through my grumpy moments.

Now Aunt Dimity and THE WISHING WELL is giving me cozy moments.

Truth be told I will also be doing my homework on my historical mystery this weekend. I think this weekend will be the turning point that maybe by Monday I might be able to start the first chapter. If this the case that will be great but I do have a lot of work ahead of me to make that happen. Today will definitely bring it's challenges in this area but well worth it.

Once again I have to add that Nancy Cohen is a blessing her book is working miracles. I m working through the blocks and having the time of my life, even though my brain hurts.

I will also send author inquiry this weekend for blog interviews. As I write I must sit down this morning and make my weekend list of to-do things.

Okay off to refill my coffee cup and get this day started.

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.
