Sometimes I Write a Poem.....


Own Life


The past is a fortunate mist
The present is a dream

replacing future with existence


Living is an oracular tryst

Its journey a winding stream


replacing mystery with resonance

Lunching with Mystery Readers....C'est Bon!



These members of the Roseville/Rocklin Mystery Book Club were a blast!  We talked about how and why I wrote, Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper and they gave a nudge for me to hurry with book 2.

(It worked, book 2 is being finalized!!)

The linguistic gumbo of Louisiana Creole & Cajun languages..."Making Groceries"







If you're Creole or Cajun,  you don't go to the supermarket...or do your grocery shopping...

You go "make" groceries!


"Make" is a transalation of the French, faire or do.  Creole and Cajun French are infused with French, Spanish and some African languages.

In my mystery, Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper, heroine Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis can make a mean gumbo!

But first she gotta go "make" groceries, mon cher!
