A Roll In the Hay? Hmmm…

“So, in this next book, are they going to take a roll in the hay?” An old and dear friend pulled me aside the other day and asked me this question, referring to Luke and Christine. I was evasive in answering. He, (yes, it was a he) didn’t like this. “It’s a yes or no […]

    Chick McKissick’s Munificent Marinade Recipe

    Folks, don’t get me wrong…. I like vegetarians. Even though most folks in Watervalley think vegetarians are just lousy hunters, if someone wants to be the Potentate of Tofu, that’s fine by me. That’s why my munificent marinade isn’t just good on all kinds of meat, it’s great on veggies like zucchini and squash…. especially […]

Each Shining Hour Gets Endorsed By Ann B Ross

Each Shining Hour Gets Endorsed By Ann B Ross

“A young doctor, marking time until he can leave a somnolent farm town for the bustle of a big city, finds more excitement in Watervalley than he bargained for-an alluring woman, or two; an unsolved murder, or two; a crafty banker who knows more than he’s saying; and a cache of . . . well, […]

Karen White Calls Each Shining Hour A “Rare Gem”

“Heart-warming, refreshing, and often amusing, this touching novel about a likable yet conflicted new doctor sent to a rural Tennessee town is a rare gem.  A bustling medical practice, a budding romance, and a passel of small town dramas make this a rich read, but a decades old murder mystery adds the icing on the cake. The […]
