For Whom the Funeral Bell Tolls
The Fourth Delilah Dickinson Literary Tour Mystery


Delilah takes a tour group to Key West, Florida, to visit the house where Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote during the Thirties, along with all the tropical attractions that Key West has to offer.  Key West is a funky but beautiful place, of course, but then death intrudes when one of the tourists appears to commit suicide by killing himself with a shotgun in what seems to be an attempt to recreate Hemingway’s suicide.  Naturally, though, the “suicide” turns out to be murder, and once more Delilah finds herself trying to find a killer. Nazi spies?  U-boats run aground on Caribbean islands?  Buried treasure?  Modern-day pirates and drug smugglers?  Delilah will have her hands full sorting out this one.

Witch Got Your Tongue

Witch_Revised_Sm.jpg (80855 bytes)Aren McAllister is a beautiful but shy and withdrawn young woman who has battled a stuttering problem her entire life. But then, seemingly by accident, she discovers that she wields an incredible power: she is actually a witch and can cast potent spells . . . but only by singing them. This discovery throws Aren into a dangerous power struggle between different factions in the society of witches who live among humans unknown by them. And for the first time she encounters a romance that may change her life as much or more than the powers she never knew she had.

WITCH GOT YOUR TONGUE is the first novel in the Tongue Tied Witch series, a brand-new urban fantasy thrill ride from award-winning, best-selling novelist Livia J. Washburn, author of the best selling Fresh Baked Mystery series and the Literary Tour Mysteries.

House.jpg (112013 bytes)Welcome to our home.  The house we'd had for 30 years burned down January 29th 2008 in a wildfire, and we moved into our new home December 2008.  We still have grass and trees to plant, but we're very happy with the new house.  So many people helped us after the fire.  We were very lucky.

If you are thinking about building a house in Azle Texas area, I would heartily recommend Larry and Karen Mackey of Prestige Builders
