Underneath the long hood, a 327 cubic inch Straight Eight engine pulsed at idle, standing by and eager to break into a roar. Twenty-year-old Annie Dahl was seated on the front seat, legs crossed and waiting as patiently as s Read more of this blog post »

A common gadabout who freely wanders over the landscape with wanton disregard. His days are spent picking up all the stray free words he can handle and squirreling them away for later use.
Subsequently, (days, months or years later) working by candlelight and hidden away in his dank, musty secluded lair, the rogue simply rearranges the collected words on yellowed bond with a sharpened quill ink pen fashioned from the tail feather of a bald-headed vulture.
Once finished, the dastardly cur audaciously attempts to sell those assembled pages for fleeting fame and profit.”
Leopold Throckmorton

Donna Mr. Hackemer:
I have also read all the Throckmorton stories and did love each and every one of them. You are a wonderful storyteller.

Thank you.

Donna Edward,
I sure wished I could win all of the Throckmorton series of books. I read Sangria Sunsets and got hooked. You are a very talented writer. Bless You.

Mkittysamom I watched Murder at the Vanities! I really liked it! I get why they say pre-code was more real and gritty now ;)
