linkedamanda-1024x812Amanda Thrasher is an author whom I have come to greatly admire – not just for her talent, but because she is a lovely, genuine person. Pick up any one of her books and you will feel that quality. I dearly love her Mushroom Patch series and have decided that when I grow up, I want to move to the Mushroom Patch! I hope they will kindly save me a spot. These questions are from an interview a few years ago.

When did you start writing?

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. What sticks in my head, was recognition for a poem that I wrote when I was nine years old and a creative story when I was ten. That poem was saved for years via my mom; it now is hung above my desk. Writing for me, truly is about the love of words…

Stephanie frowned. “Robert? Oh, I see,” she said. “Oh, yes. He was here, he bit me and left the room through that archway,” she continued, offering the woman a smile as if to say no harm done and then went on. “I think we can chalk that up to his injury. He’s in pain. When they hurt a member like that, and-and if it’s not kept still it would probably be sore, which could upset him, and-and make him strike out. I’ve seen this before, working part-time at the hospital. He’s had all his shots so there should be no problem.” Stephanie stopped there not wanting to babble anymore.

 The woman’s now shocked and red face puzzled Stephanie. On second look, Stephanie thought the woman was angry.

front-cover-of-daytona-dead“My husband has all that get it from him.” Then a thought came to me. ‘Where was Gerry?’  As if to read my mind, the bitchy one with the ice pack said, “We can’t, he’s not here. “Barney Fife” in the hallway says he’s in lock up.” Then it all came back to me. Lou was dead and the cops must think we did it. “Oh crap!” was heard throughout the Emergency ward.

Hag slender versionAudrey Saldano has learned to be tough. Living on the less posh side of Cleveland, she knows how to defend herself. The only thing she can’t defend herself against is the pain she feels when she sees her ex-boyfriend, Desmond, with his new girlfriend, Raquel.

Even the appearance of a hot, interesting new guy, Roddai, can’t make her feel any less upset. In fact, Roddai irritates her even more. He’s persistent and, eventually, Audrey finds that she enjoys his company.

Audrey isn’t quite sure what’s going on when Desmond shows up at her home and wants to be friends again. In fact, he asks her out to a carnival and she agrees to go. While there, he’s jumped by a bunch of boys from another school. Desmond fights them off, but gets surrounded. Fortunately, Roddai isn’t far away and jumps in to help Desmond, scaring the other boys off.

Cereal Authors

Room 113 A Marice Houston Mystery“Where’s my brother?” Brick demanded.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about, Brick,” Finetti replied.

“You don’t call me that! Where’s my brother? You tried to kill him once before….”

“Twice, you’ll recall.”

“I swear to God, you bitch. If he’s hurt or killed, I will do to you tenfold what happens to him. You won’t live to stand trial.”

“I want to call attention to the fact he’s threatening me,” she said sternly.

“I don’t hear a damn thing,” Alvin said. “Where’s his brother?”

China Finetti clamped he lips together.

“Lady, you damn well better talk, or I’m gonna let that boy go postal on your ass. There’s not a person here who would stop him. You might not ever tell him what he wants to know, and you do have the right to remain silent, but I guarantee, you’ll die screaming.”
