  1. Cole Matthews wrote a GREAT story here at GA years ago, "Barbed Wire Heart". His writing kept me entranced, and his ending of the tale caught me, and several others here totally off guard. Cole is now a Signature Author here; his work is in the premium section. Not on GA, but years ago I got to work with Erica Spindler when I lived in Dallas as she did research for her (then new) book "See Jane Die". A nice combo of romance and murder, i never recognized the killer up until the last few pages of the book. You may be able to find that online, or in libraries, since it's several years old. Beyond that, life has gotten in my way and I've not been able to read like I'd have liked. But, I'm back, and as I find interesting stories, I'll be glad to pass 'em along to you if you'd like.....just let me know.
  2. I recently read an article for writers that basically said a good murder mystery has a surprise "killer" and/or surprise situation--one that was virtually unpredictable from casual reading of the tale. Or perhaps a very small thread of previously un-followed up clues. Do you agree? Do you prefer a killer that may be unpredictable? Predictable upon very close reading? Or a plot line that confirms you'd known the killer all along? True confession here: I'm working on a new tale and it appears to be moving towards a combination of murder with ESP used to solve it. (And for those who'd read "Lions' Lair" and "Landfall", you'll see many of those same characters again.) Thanks for the comments!
  3. Thanks, Headstall! I took an early retirement to take care of mom, who lost her 4 year battle with Alzheimer's last December. That kept me occupied enough I wasn't able to be here, or to write--but (terrifyingly enough) I'm back....<grin> You'll be seeing more of me around here/! And trust me, I've missed the place and friends like you here- a LOT.
  4. It's was actually "sweet"....(another Southern word of scorn); others labeled it as "cute". It just lacked appropriate marketing--otherwise, the book was absolutely precious.
  5. "Run over a plate for Mrs. Jones." This has nothing to do with a ritual procedure or minor car accident sacrificing china, but sharing your prepared meal with a neighbor/friend, either by walking it over or driving it to them. "That's like ten pounds of potatoes in a five pound sack." Meaning, something is (detrimentally) overstuffed. Used in a sentence: "Did you see the cellulite on that butt? Looked like ten pounds of potatoes in a five-pound sack. Spandex should be off limits for that one!" A great source of "Southernisms" is a small book, "The Southern Belle Primer". I giggled all the way through it--simply because it was so thoroughly accurate.
  6. Hello Robert Rex. I hope that you are getting the hint, that you really are missed here at GA. Do what you gotta do and stop by if you can. Positive thoughts going your way, non stop.

    I want to wish you a belated Happy 65th Birthday and hope you had a good day.
