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 […]

Author’s Blog – Gentle Fiction

Gentle Fiction…What It Is and Why I Write It. Some of my favorite Southern authors, William Faulkner, Flannery O’Conner, Thomas Wolfe, and James Dickey, just to name a few, all have one thing in common: they didn’t write gentle fiction. They wrote Southern gothic. Southern gothic focuses on the depravity of our beloved South and […]

    Luke Meets Estelle, Connie’s Flamboyant Sister

    She folded her arms, giving me a look of complete adoration. Her words began in a high pitch of inquiry and then descended lower. “Really? You’re willing to do that? Well, darling, if that’s the case, then you may need to pucker up ‘cause I might be laying a little bit of heaven on you.”  […]

Even though he was the Pastor at Watervalley First Presbyterian, probably more than he wanted to admit it, the marijuana helped. This year, Joe and his wife, Mary Beth, were also celebrating their tenth wedding […]

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”

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 […]
