By that time I was reading "The Saturday Evening Post," "Collier's," "Life," "Look," "Time," "Argosy," "True," "Photoplay," that my parents subscribed to and others I can't remember.

“Someone—or ones—was in the house; my gut told me they were my faithless husband and his illicit lover. A ribbon of smoke curled from the chimney. My plan was going to work!”

Jack Erickson Thanks Magenta, glad we're connected on GR. If you have time, go to my personal web site (my name dot com) to read opening chapters of all my books / short stories. You can also sign up for my email newsletter on the contact page. I'm writing a thriller series based in Milan and travel there every year. I see that you are interested in languages; I'm studying w/ a tutor in Monterey and will take intensive Italian classes again this summer.
A presto!
Jack
