When I was younger, my dad told me a story that’s still a mystery to me. My dad’s family farmed land down by Centerville, South Dakota, and in fact has a large family marker in the cemetery there. My great-grandfather, however, is buried outside the cemetery, and I’m not sure why. My dad said that my great-grandfather caught a man stealing his horse and shot him, and that's why they wouldn't bury him inside the cemetery, but I would like to research this mystery someday and figure out what really happened all those years ago. Perhaps it could make for a really great plot in a book!(less)

In Celebration of the Irish

Grandpa and Grandma with Grandma’s favorite tea cup and her Hot Milk Sponge Cake


So many stories surround the Irish: luck, gold, rainbows. My grandma was Irish, and for years, her story has fascinated me. As a young woman, she went to the University of South Dakota. It was rare for a woman from a farming family to attend college in the early twentieth century, yet she received her teaching certi...

A charming cozy set in the Midwest! I loved solving an old mystery while reading about an old house, and the romance between Jazzi and Ansel was fun. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens.
