Happy Mother’s Day!
Wow! I excited that author Debra H Goldstein picked me, Maybelle Johnson, to be the featured character during Killer Characters’ Cozy Spring Fling – especially because today is Mother’s Day. You see, I’m the title character, Sarah Blair’s mother.
Then again, who else could Debra have picked from the Sarah Blair series? My daughters: Sarah or Emily? Sarah’s pets: RahRah and Fluffy? That sweet lawyer Sarah works for – Harlan Endicott? One of those hunks who keeps flitting across the pages? (well, maybe I should check into those).
Let me tell you about myself. I like to think I’m someone to be reckoned with. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, but when my husband was alive, we did a lot of business and had a lot of friends in Wheaton – that’s where my daughters live. Because of my grapevine, the girls often accuse me of knowing things before they do. They’re right.
When my dearly beloved husband died, I was desolate. I also started worrying whether I’d have enough money to survive. After all, I’m just turning sixty and plan to live a good long life. It was only after my daughters sat me down and showed me the true state of my finances that I realized I won’t outlive my money. That’s when I decided to live like there is no tomorrow. I’ve been traveling quite a bit since then.
You didn’t meet me in One Taste Too Many because I was at a spa in Mexico. It’s a good thing I didn’t have access to my phone or the news or I might have discovered the heap of trouble my daughters were in. Luckily, Sarah got Emily out of a very sticky situation. Sarah may find being in the kitchen scarier than murder, but she does come through when murder is in the air. If it wasn’t for her, I might, based upon what Chief Gerard believed in Two Bites Too Many, be writing this blog from behind prison bars. Family and friends are important to Sarah – as you’ll see in Three Treats Too Many (which you can pre-order now at https://www.amazon.com/Three-Treats-Sarah-Blair-Mystery/dp/1496719492 ).
Speaking of treats, as part of the Spring Fling, my daughters and I want to give away something special – a $10 Amazon gift certificate. For a chance to win it, leave a comment telling me about your best Mother’s Day as a mother or a daughter. Happy Mother’s Day!
