I have a confession. Whenever a new show is a huge hit out of the gate, I don’t watch it. I don’t know why, I think I get overwhelmed by the hype. I figure
I love this time of year. The cool, crisp air. The shorter days, the leaves, football, Halloween, warm fires and comfort food. I love to cook, but when it comes to comfort food the hubster seems to take the cake. Mostly his attempts/experiments are flops (although he’ll beg to differ). But he does do a few things well, and some things he does exceptionally well, like Hawaiian sliders. O.M.GEE! You gotta try them! They’re easy to make and oh so delish to eat. And you can’t eat just one or two, you will seriously want to face plant into the entire tray! I love this recipe so much, it inspired this blog today. Of course whenever I find something good, I share, so here it is, my new fave comfort food, Hawaiian Sliders. Try them, you’ll love them! What’s your favorite comfort food?

Many of you who know my husband personally, know I have had from day one of my writing journey, his unconditional support. He’s my go-to guy when I need help with fight scenes, cop talk, cop procedure, suspense plots, bitch session or need to tweak (not to be confused with twerk) that hot cop alpha POV that I not only live with on a daily basis, but write about (hey, I write what I know). I honestly don’t think I would have ever published had he not been along with me each step of the way. He has never turned down any request I have made of him when it comes to the story. Or to write a poem. Along For The Ride was one such request. A couple of years ago, I was on a crazy deadline schedule, had no time or brain cells available to think about a blog much less write one. As he always does, he came through when I asked him to whip something up. I posted this once before, but I thought I’d share it again, mostly because I love this poem, and secondly, I kind of wanted to show him off a little. ^.^
Along For The Ride
by The Hubster
It starts as a dream,
she wants to fulfill.
She knows it’s not easy,
it’s an upward hill.
Gotcha! Sorry, couldn’t help it. When Deborah titled her blog ‘The Perfect Ass’ the other day, our hits skyrocketed. Just goes to show where our minds are. That perfect ass could have been construed as the perfect ass as in that dude was a perfect ass! i.e. jerkwad. Or the perfect ass could have been describing a man’s hot muscular glutes w/pictorial. Or less exciting for us women, talking about a woman’s booty.
As it was, Deborah was talking about no longer pursuing The Perfect Ass, hers specifically. Here’s the link to get the down lo on her ass. http://www.murdershewrites.com/2013/07/29/perfection/
I am so, so, so thrilled that our long-time MSW gal Roxanne St. Claire is back as a special guest! Please welcome her back and read on … because she’s giving away books, too! ~Allison
Hello old friends and new ones! So great to be back at Murder She Writes, but I admit I barely recognize the place. What an incredible transformation this blog has experienced!! Congrats to the new team who’ve continued a long tradition of keeping a group blog lively and informative. And special thanks to Allison for inviting me back to my old stomping grounds.
Speaking of changes, it’s been well over a year since I was a regular at MSW and much has changed for me, too. For one thing, no one dies in my books anymore. (Well, not by anyone else’s hand, at least.) Writing contemporary romance has been a terrific move for me professionally (the first one hit the New York Times list!) and has been a lovely palate cleanser for me creatively.

Two years before the events in Notorious, Max travels to Colorado Springs to investigate the disappearance of a college student. Frustrated over the lack of interest from both friends of the victim and campus authorities, Max tags along with the leader of search and rescue and his dog through the beautiful and deadly Rocky Mountains in the hopes of finding answers. Every answer she finds leads to more questions--questions neither the police nor the college want Max asking.
