Looking For Something To Read This Weekend – Look No Further

“The Hideaway” and “The Traveler” are sure to keep you in suspense with each turn of the page.  What twisted tortures will these serial killers use on their victims?  Can anyone stop these ellusive killers?

“Dr. Frankenstein” is a medical malpractice thriller that will have you wondering which experiment he will perform next on a patient.

“Above Suspicion” is for those suspense thriller lovers that want to be kept on the edge of their seat but without all the gory details of the murder.  Step into the mind of the killer as he searches for the perfect and obedient wife.

In “Deadly Seduction” men are being found dead in their hotel room.  Detective Brett Landry fears that they are dealing with a female serial killer, one who knows how to cover her tracks very well.  Could the killer be the very seductive reporter who seems to show up at all the crime scenes?

“Horror In The Night” (available on eBook only) is for those who love gore and suspense.  Greg Ferris loves to scare people that is why his Haunted House is so popular.  Critics and fans all wonder how he gets his props to look so likelike.  Ferris is always careful to find his “props” far from home.  That is until he falls in love.  He can’t seem to stay away from his new love but he is on a deadline and the new Haunted House will be opening soon.  “House of Wax” inspired me to write this book.

“Echoes on the Bayou” and “Seven Deadly Sins” involve one of my favorite characters to date, Detective Jo Melancon. Follow her and Detective Chad Picou as they search the streets of Bear Corner, Louisiana for the killer.

The books are available in paperback and eBook on Kindle, Nook, iBook, smashwords and many more iReaders.

Mat’s Anniversary Gift – Belated

So Mat had asked for a Dodge Diesel for his anniversary. I had already started working on his gift.

It came out gorgeous. David at Jewelry Design and Repair did a fabulous job in helping to create this Masterpiece.

This ring also signifies his life’s journey. I tool several of the rings he no longer wears and melted down. This included his class ring, his Uncle Doo’s wedding and black onyx ring, my original wedding band, and one of the first rings I purchased him after we were married.

So Mat and I came up with this recipe when we had a LOT of leftover salmon.

8 oz smoked salmon, chopped

1/3 cup mayo

2 T chopped parsley

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Beazell’s Cajun Seasoning

1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheee

(Another variation is to add cream cheese instead of mayo.  I personally am not a fan of mayo and like it better with cream cheese.)
