Crime Doesn’t Pay

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

I am excited to report I’ve just finished my novella for The Kill Zone: Ten Deadly Thrillers! It was satisfying to finish Andi and Will’s story from Justice Delayed. I’m anxious to discover what my readers think about their wrap-up. I had intended to follow up on their story in the next Memphis cold case book, Justice Buried, but that story had a mind …

Slugburger History

As I promised last week, here’s a little history on the slugburger. But first, the answer to last week’s mystery question is #2. Quite a few of you got the correct answer.  Now onto the slugburger. John Weeks grew up in Chicago and moved to Corinth, Mississippi, in 1917 with his four brothers, bringing with him a hamburger recipe that he …

Would you eat a Slugburger?

  Last weekend our small town had a Slugburger Festival. We had things like music, amusement park rides, and an eating contest where more than a hundred and fifty people gathered around the tables during the ten-minute competition to see who could eat the most slugburgers.

What’s Your Fave Genre?

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

And it wandered to the different types of books I’ve been reading. I’m basically a mystery/suspense/romantic suspense reader, but lately, I’ve …

Excuses, Excuses

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

I’ve always said everyone should own rental property in their lifetime. “Why?” might you ask. For one thing, you’ll have stories to write a blog about, and another, you wouldn’t believe the excuses people come up with when they don’t have the rent.

And Then the Police Came

Patricia Bradley Mystery Question

It’s been an interesting weekend, ending with me having laryngitis. First of all, I didn’t get the book off on Thursday to my editor. The last read-through involved more revisions that I thought it would take, so Sunday night found me diligently working. I took a break and changed into pj’s and set my alarm so that when I quit …
