This just in…
I’m so excited! I’ve just added a section to my website that will include recipes from Marg Kemp’s cookbook. Why is this so cool, you ask?
First of all, if you know anything about me and my extremely limited web dev skills, you’ll do the happy dance with me for accomplishing this – WITHOUT PAYING SOMEONE!
Second, those of you familiar with the Coffee and Crime Mysteries know that Marg Kemp’s scrumptious treats are responsible for 75% of the foot traffic into The Sacred Caff. (No, Marg, it is not 90%. The coffee and tea count for something). I mean, coffee is great, but coffee and a scone? Irresistible. So I’ve decided to share some of her favorite recipes here on the site. Hope you enjoy! And please, if you make one of the recipes, drop me a line and let me know how they turned out for you!
To check out the page, just look up there (pointing upwards) and you’ll see a list of menu choices across the top of the page above the banner.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming. 🙂
Fringe Benefits, Book 4 in the Coffee & Crime Mysteries, featuring coffee shop owner Ellie Gooden, is heading into final edits (YAY!!), so I thought I’d share a sneak peek from Chapter One here with you all! Hope this whets your appetite!

Lila Lee made one final, stertorous effort to inhale before collapsing to the floor. Ellie saw a flash of bright white light manifest above the body and skitter up towards the ceiling. As it vanished, she felt a chill ripple her scalp. With a curse, Charlie started CPR, but Ellie knew it would do little good. The author’s spirit had, as the saying went, left the building. Lila Lee Merrill, the First Lady of Love, was dead.

Stay tuned for the final release date! And as always,

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know I will be signing books at the Elgin Literary Festival this year! I’m very excited to be a part of this event. It brings together lots of regional authors and readers in a day and a half of unfettered literary abandon. One of the highlights of this year’s Festival is the presence of author and irreverant authorial luminary, Chuck Wendig.
It takes place Friday January 26 and Saturday January 27th. Book signings will be on Saturday, between 11 and 1, in the Hemmens Cultural Center. Check here for additional details. If you’re local, I hope you’ll make the trek into Elgin – it looks to be a terrific event. I mean, come on, guys, even if you don’t want to stop by and chat with me, Chuck Wendig will be speaking from 2:30 to 4:00. CHUCK WENDIG!!!
Hope to see some of you there! And always,
Illegitimi non carborundum!
Apparently the solar eclipse this week opened up a time portal. I’m now happily back in the 70s, listening to all my favorite music on my FM radio as I bicycle past Guilford High School and give the building a (fond) one-finger salute. 🙂
Should you stay or should you go? Oh, definitely stay, because it’s that time of the week again! You know, where you get up on your feet and shake, shake, shake your booty? (Hah! Fooled you, that’s not it!) Riding on the coat tails of last week’s Billy Idol tune, here’s another snarling punk band. Give it up for The Clash and Should I Stay or Should I Go!
