Hello from a lazy blogger

I spend as much time as possible working on my next novel, but that isn't enough. I work in a recliner with my trackball on my chest and my keyboard in my lap so I rarely have to get up to stretch, but I still don't have enough time. A lot of that is my own damn fault.…

They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just to relax.”

Review: "The Prairie Chicken Kill: A Truman Smith Mystery" by Bill Crider

When you solve the murder of an alligator as well a few other things you get a reputation for getting things done. Truman Smith might prefer to sit at the house on Galveston Island, but Dino comes to drag him into yet another fine mess. Though, at first, it doesn’t appear to be that big a deal.
