"Rosebuds, lace, whispered promises to have and to hold....these are the romantic images of marriage in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Sometimes, however, that pledge to remain true and faithful 'til death we do part' gave ideas of a darker sort to mis-matched couples. Explore some of the cases which had people talking, gawking, and guessing. Murderous Marriages because when love goes wrong - it can be a killer. "
In this work, I explore some historic cases of spousal slaughter.
If nothing else, I now have an excuse to buy more Victorian and Edwardian clothes (as if I needed an excuse!!).

City Desk, -- The city is buzzing with arrival of the elegant and somewhat mysterious woman who calls herself, "Madame Delaine." So far, this reporter has been unable to arrange a private interview with the woman do to her calendar being so full of local men and women who have come to have her share her gift with them. The local law officers have examined her credentials and state she officers no threat to citizens. Watching the petite and elegant woman, whose dress is always the most up-to-date in fashion and modest of style, the sense of mystery is great and, one fears, unanswerable.

1: What is the title of your book?
2: Where did the idea come from for the book? A love of ghost stories - real and fictional- led to the evolution of the novel. We - my co-author Cullan Hudson - wanted a smart book and one we would like to read ourselves and this was the result.
11. Where can people find your book? It is available via Amazon in print and Kindle formats, Barnes and Noble and many libraries have it as well. Of course, I can always connect people to the books and do presentations, especially in Oklahoma.

Spring break week is usually a time for relaxation, but this one has been about getting some manuscripts finished and working out the plans for some others. In addition, editing a couple of academic articles and working on some research.
The air is too chill, but the sun is warming the earth, and if I look closely, I see the small struggling buds on winter brittle branches. They are there in spite of the chill, the uncertainity, and the long road to mellow days of summer. A lot like writing.
So, must mentally shake off the cobwebs, dust off the spring creative cape, I will turn back to the task, focus on the words, and be one with the emerging buds of a creative summer yet to come.

A special opportunity for area schools in honor of the CHISHOLM TRAIL BOOK FESTIVAL, Sat. Oct. 24, 2009 (http://www.duncanarea.com/). I am now scheduling special programs for Friday, Oct. 23m 2009.
“Before There Were Books There Were Stories!” – A fun story program featuring ancient legends, early Oklahoma stories, and an original tale.
Ties in well with social studies and language arts curriculum and goals.
20 min., 30 min., or 40 min. time slots available depending on age of audience.
Large enough space so that there is not too much crowding, but not so large as to loose intimacy. The library, a large hallway, a corner of the gym (if not being used), a classroom – all can serve well as performance space.
COST: Special Chisholm Trail Book Festival price is $95 per performance; can do multiple schools in one day if arranged far enough in advance.
