The game is afoot in Key West, Florida and there's a dead body in the Toucan Suite of the Paradise B&B. This is Rebecca Barrett's second book in this series written by multiple authors (The Mad Catters) who follow the antics of super-sleuth Trouble as he lands in first one crime scene then another. Of course, the humans help a little. These romantic m

The Naming Game

William Shakespeare famously asked…

“What is in a name…”


Quite a lot, actually, especially if you’re a writer. I had the most wonderful English professor, Father Doyle. Yes, it was a Jesuit College. He and my eleventh grade teacher, Mrs. Sullivan, instilled in me the love of language and a desire to write the stories that were always intruding on my thoughts.


Perhaps it’s, in part, due to the fa...

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”
Joseph Brodsky

Dorothy Parker
Résumé
Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
Sid Ziff

Rebecca Barrett Just finished The Tale of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. This is a powerful story of good and evil. The writer weaves all the elements of the tale into the fabric of the story so that even though the ending is unexpected, it is there, slowly building to a heart wrenching conclusion. This is a story that will stay with you for a long time.
