Book 4 Title: A Crafty Christmas


I love lists! Where would my harried life be without them? After my run, I start each day with a list to make certain everything gets done. When I saw some folks doings "Million Year" lists, I thought it would be fun to come up with a few things for my own list. Ya know, sort of like a reverse bucket list. The idea is to list off things that have happened to you, but that you never imagined would have. Fun, right?

I agreed with some of the other out there-- ten things in this list is too much. Five is just right. So I thought I’d give it a go. Here’s my contribution to the “Million Years List.”  

Never in a million years did I think I would:
1. Win an international scrapbook design contest and get to go on a cruise.   
2.     Trip over a dead body on said cruise.
3.     Scrapbook with a witch.
4. Celebrate Christmas somewhere other than my own home. And be okay with that. 
5.     Be approached for an autograph. 

What might be on your list?

One lucky commenter will win a copy of A CRAFTY CHRISTMAS.

  18. I'm so severely technically challenged that I never thought I could go on Facebook, but here I am. My 10 year old grandson had to set up the page for me and I'm still stumbling along, but I'm getting better each day. I'm 68 years old, so I guess it's true - you can teach a old dog new tricks. If Casey hadn't helped me I wouldn't be here at Killer Characters. I've discovered many wonderful authors, reconnected with old friends and made many new ones! It's been a wonderful experience. ruthmazur46@gmail.com

  30. Never thought I would be the topic of a newspaper article but I was when I contacted Dean Koontz with a possible plagarism case of his book "Phantoms" several years ago. He pursued it and won against the other author and the Asbury Park Press interviewed me afterwards when my name was mentioned in the publicity that followed the verdict. My very own 15 minutes of fame! kuzlin at aol.com
