We’re celebrating the upcoming release of my third Food Lovers’ Village mystery, BUTTER OFF DEAD (July 7—save the suspense and pre-order it now!), with a glimpse of some of your favorite authors’ prized collections.
CONNIE ARCHER, author of Ladle to the Grave, 4th in the Soup Lovers’ Mysteries, shares two collections.
Of her dice, she says simply “Dice remind me that it’s important to take chances in life.”
My invitation prompted her to look around and notice a collection for the first time.
“I never realized we actually had a collection of masks and faces. It’s accumulated over the years, they’re strange, but I love them. Maybe it has something to do with loving mysteries, i.e., wondering what’s behind the mask.”
“We’ve picked them up over the years in strange places. The Cyclops comes from an island off Sicily where Homer first wrote about them; the elephant mask we found in a junk shop in Venice, California.”
(Hint: if you subscribe to the blog, you’ll receive the posts by email and you won’t have to hunt for them on FB.)
