Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

The last time, there had been only one at the door to take coats. Yet as she moved further into the bar, she saw why they had brought more in. The bar was the busiest Harriet had ever seen…well…anywhere. The dance floor was still there and the couples dancing managed to swing around without colliding with anyone, a skill Harriet was sure she didn’t possess. She was used to open spaces for her dancing. People were standing around cha...

OBJECT LESSONS was inspired by an eccentric Chicago heiress named Frances Glessner Lee. In the 1940’s, Lee designed 18 miniature models of crime scenes to train police investigators. Built to the scale of one inch to one foot, and complete with tiny victims, Lee’s dioramas are enigmas begging to be solved. Here are Lily Sparks’ favorites: 1: Three-Room Dwelling: Robert and Kate Judson, and their baby Linda Mae, are shot to death in their t...

Missing persons stories appear in the news all too frequently, capturing the attention of the nation with a multitude of questions. Where did the person go? Is the person safe? What happened and why? Whether it’s the manhunt for Brian Laundrie amid the swirling questions of his fiancée’s death or the past well-publicized kidnappings of Patty Hearst and Elizabeth Smart, or the still-unsolved disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, cases involving missi...

FROM CHAPTER EIGHT: Real or Surreal Nicolas grabbed a glass of sparkling wine off one of the servers’ trays, the movement bringing me back to the present. At over six feet tall, he towered over me, intimidating. His perfectly disheveled chestnut hair blew in the breeze, as if he’d just rolled out of the sack with the blond. His eyes bored into mine, dark blue with a devilish twinkle. His trimmed beard highlighted a chiseled jawline. By the wa...

I made it!
Guests / May 15, 2005

Well, I made it, and I’m currently reading Snowed In by Christina Bartolomeo(hopefully I spelled that right, as I don’t have the book by me) It’s not what I would consider romance, though that’s the way it was billed. I would consider it more a piece of women’s fiction. It’s my first read by this author, and I’m not yet finished, so haevn’t formed a complete opinion. Sandi Visit FreshFicti...

Stroll down memory lane
Guests / May 15, 2005

On a recent “TRASH” trip to St. Louis, I managed to pick up books by two of my childhood — well, young girl in the 60s/70s — favorites: Jane Aiken Hodge and Mary Stewart. Not only did it bring back memories of reading in a sun warmed room, or dusty hideaway, but also memories of adventure outside the farming community I lived. Mary Stewart brought a sophisticated international world into existence for me, especia...

Gothic, suspense and fantasy
Guests / May 14, 2005

To be very honest, I’ve never kept a reading journal as I never saw the point. I remember the good of what I’ve read and if a book has me pondering, well, then I might reread it or not. Reading has and I hope always will be entertainment and not a vessel of confounded thinking. But I digress, I think I’m supposed to note books I’ve read since last posting, uh, that would be yesterday’s readings. Yes, the pr...

Reading for a surgery center
Guests / May 13, 2005

Yup, time to spend the day in the surgery center, waiting for my husband’s treatment to be finished, and nothing much to do except watch a really lame series of programs on the television which I’d normally never be exposed. Now, I can sit in suspension while wondering how people can handle that pap, but I’ve learned over the years that the boob tube does seem to have a mesmerizing hold on millions, something I’l...

Book Signing — Mary Kay Andrews
Guests / May 12, 2005

The thing I like about a book signing when you go with someone else you make it into an “event” by always combining with food. Or drinks. I can do drinks too. But the best part is the anticipation. M and I were the only ones who could make it to the Mary Kay Andrews (MKA) signing last night in Plano, but we had a blast. MKA is delightful in person and we learned all the secrets of a best selling book– I’d be happ...

Curious and what?
Guests / May 11, 2005

Just invited to check out a group of authors on their blog who are helping a readers group become more exciting. Now, color me stupid, but unless those readers are part of an active readers group, know the trials and tribulations of keeping a group dynamic and growing, isn’t it asking for just a general well-meaning opinion? I really don’t get it. I’d rather ask advice from a group similar to the one I’d be tryin...
