About Me:
What to put here? Formerly published with Silver Dagger Mysteries, I'm starting anew many years later, this time diving into historical mystery (late 1890's). I'm widowed, single but not (cryptic, huh--am a private person about some aspects of my life but then again, who isn't?), mom of two teenagers and two Springers, and work in the day job as a research analyst for an engineering firm that does all the mapping and data for a major railroad. Strange job, but I love it. I travel as much as possible--especially to Germany, which I have fallen in love with for many reasons. I'm going back in May. That's me in a nutshell, I suppose.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
My tastes run the gamut from books like MIDDLESEX by Jeffrey Eugenides, to Sarah Waters' books, to Harlan Coben to Jan Burke and other authors such as J.K. Rowling, Joe Lansdale (THE BOTTOMS--one of my all-time favorite novels) to RED LEAVES by Thomas H. Cook. So many on my bookshelves, so many more still to read. Current read is THE INSTANCE OF THE FINGERPOST by Iain Pears.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Criminal Minds. Torchwood, Touching Evil (UK), NCIS, various other shows both in the US and UK.

Historical Mystery

Just putting a general query here--any historical crime writers out there yet?

I'm working on my first, set in the late 1890's in Texas. Butch Cassidy will play a small recurring role (I admit, I do crush on that man), and I'm at last shaking the dust off the research I've gathered over the years with this book in mind. I work for an engineering company that does all the mapping for BNSF Rwy., and before that worked at the Railroad itself, and as…

The First Time Is Always the Hardest

M. Tarquini sent me. I was supposed to say that. She said to. So now I have. There.

Glad to be here. I'm going to write just a little post to start out--as I told Mindy, I'm more inclined to stick my toes in cautiously than make a big splash. Less chance of making a fool of myself, right? I was published years ago, with Silver Dagger Mysteries. I wrote a nice traditional mystery that I thought would be the first of a series with SDM. it was a great…

I have no idea when the last time you checked in here was ... it's been months since I've lurked around here. But since I'm here today, I thought I'd leave a small comment on your wall.

Happy New Year, friend!

You have two Springer Spaniels, right? My best dog *ever* was a Springer Spaniel, back when I was 8-12 years old (lo these many years ago). His name was Major. What a great dog. I still miss him!

Hi Carolyn, best of luck with your historical mystery, and have a wonderful time in Germany!

LOL Kathy, no that wasn't the one in my mind, it was sung by Robert Goulet (oh what a voice!) And I found it! Ooohhhhhh I can hear him now!!!! LOLOL. Not a very crimespacey topic but hey!

If ever I would leave you
It wouldn't be in summer.
Seeing you in summer I never would go.
Your hair streaked with sun-light,
Your lips red as flame,
Your face witha lustre
that puts gold to shame!

But if I'd ever leave you,
It couldn't be in autumn.
How I'd leave in autumn I never will know.
I've seen how you sparkle
When fall nips the air.
I know you in autumn
And I must be there.

And could I leave you
running merrily through the snow?
Or on a wintry evening
when you catch the fire's glow?

If ever I would leave you,
How could it be in spring-time?
Knowing how in spring I'm bewitched by you so?
Oh, no! not in spring-time!
Summer, winter or fall!
No, never could I leave you at all!

Kathy--hope you see this. Are you notified when I answer? Hmm. Anyway, my dad had Richard Harris on the reel to reel. I can close my eyes and hear that music pouring through the house. I just wish I could remember the words... I can remember the tune--springtime, December I think... la la la... I wonder if he still has all those old tapes. Leslie my sister and I just loved laying on the living room floor and listening to those old things. Smile.

PJ, hey!!! You remember me? HOw cool! What is this Dallas even in June? Hardboiled and Cozy cats? Hardboiled cats? Huh? LOL. I would love to attend that.

Wow, it's been a while! Great to see you here. How come we're not getting any older??

LOL watch it, woman! Yes, I'm getting back in the groove finally--and choose to work on something that will take me forever. But gotta do what you gotta do. Wish you still lived here. We could rumble.

Some people are like a bad penny. You just can't get rid of them. I can't tell you how thrilled I am that you are getting back into the groove!
