MJ can't remember a time when she wasn't creating her own stories and considers every life experience fodder for her fiction.

Although her 30-year career in local television included such highlights as being bitten by a lion, preempting a US President for a college basketball game, giving a three-time world champion boxer a few black eyes, a mention in the Drudge Report, and meeting her husband, the urge to create her own stories never went away.

Movie-Memory: Big Night & Stanley Tucci

        I have been watching CNN’s series, STANLEY TUCCI, LOOKING FOR ITALY.  I am in bliss for several reasons: Italy, food, wine, and Tucci himself. The very first time I became aware of Tucci was in 1996. I must have read about the movie Big Night somewhere, because I was desperate to see … Continue reading Movie-Memory: Big Night & Stanley Tucci Read more of this blog post »

"I only made it to 20%! It was the detailed discussion of the juvenalia that did me in, since I was quite interested in father Patrick Bronte and the older sisters dying. But the library wants it back, so I will relinquish this and wait for the blockb" Read more of this review »
The Brontës by Juliet Barker
"I appreciate Barker's thoroughness and research, but really this biography should have been 30% shorter. There's only so much a reader can take about the 19th century church politics that vexed Patrick Bronte and there's only so much detail you need " Read more of this review »
