I’m going to an author event this Saturday at Everybody Reads to read an excerpt from my novel “Knitting Up a Murder.” I’ve been told there may be kids this event, so the organizer asked me if my reading will include any R or X-rated words or adult content. Welllll…not really. I do cozy mysteries, so the strongest words are “shit” and “crapper.”

The more important question to me is, in addition to bringing candy should I crochet up some bookmarks for the kids? I’ve been having fun with simple bookmarks with charms attached, like dog, owl, cat, pig, turtle, hearts, etc. I put a loop on the end, and it works for attaching a key ring or using the charm as a button and making a loose fitting charm bracelet.

I love my job.
