By the way, Aggie Mundeen Mystery #3, SMART, BUT DEAD, is now available for pre-order! http://tinyurl.com/p5tt53h: Release date is November 17.

"SMART. Aggie Mundeen is smart.
BUT she’s also a little clumsy, irrepressible, and irresistible.
DEAD. She might well end up dead if she continues nosing around the university where her questions are not wanted. Smart, But Dead is the perfect combination of brains and heart. A tight mystery, an irrepressible heroine, and superb writing.” – James W. Ziskin, author of the Ellie Stone mysteries and Anthony Award-Finalist of No Stone Unturned(less)

The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd

Fantastic book. Kidd does a marvelous job of putting you in the time of Jesus with a distinctive feel for what it was like to be a Roman citizen or live in Egypt. Women's lives were so circumscribed, and Ana shows us well. Kidd acknowledges that there are no records that Jesus married; she created Ana to describe a "what-if" situation. Don't be put off by it. It's a reverent, loving, spiritual acc Read more of this blog post »

My paternal grandmother, deceased, looks exactly like a woman who lived in San Antonio. Both were born about 1837 and could be twins. I'm hoping my cousin, a great Ancestry.com researcher, can see if they were related. If it becomes my book, it's cop See Full Answer

George R.R. Martin
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

Gilda Radner
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”
Gilda Radner

William Faulkner
“Writing is a solitary job--that is, no one can help you with it, bu there's nothing lonely about it. I have always been too busy, too immersed in what I was doing, either mad at it or laughing at it to have time to wonder whether I was lonely or not lonely. It's simply solitary. I think there is a difference between loneliness and solitude.”
William Faulkner at the University of Virginia
