About and Contact

This blog started out as “it will be what it feels it wants to be,” and I guess it wanted to review books, because it quickly morphed in that direction and I reviewed books nearly nonstop for some time. I still have the desire, but not nearly as often as I used to, plus I want to do other things. For better or worse there was some serious slowdown there for awhile, and almost nothing occurred.

Nowadays things still are moving a bit slowly, but they are moving, which is a good thing. I made some pretty killer samosas during lockdown, began crafting, binge-watched the first four seasons of Outlander and am currently re-reading the entire Harry Potter series. I’m still desperately working on sketches for a book of poetry I am nearly ready to publish and am pretty sure the fire pit I’d like to build is actually do-able.

Some of my poetry has appeared in Alaska Women Speak and Bewildering Stories, and I am a contributor to Naming the Goddess. I hope you’ll stick around for some more!

Be sure to have a peek at my sidebar periodically as it changes to reflect the rotation of reads. I also keep a widget full of blogs I follow – which needs a thorough dusting, to be honest – so check it out when you swing by to see if I’ve cleaned up or added more. For updates on this and other items, go ahead and click that button!  (Upper right on main page or tab at bottom right.) You’ll get a notification–just one, so you won’t be inundated–to let you know there’s something new for you to check out.

You can contact me at scully_dc AT yahoo DOT com; I can also be found at Goodreads.

Glad to have you here and I hope each one of you is finding something marvelous in this crazy, mixed-up world.

    1. Hi, Martha, we’ve spoken since you wrote, but I wanted to say a big thanks for stopping by. We’ll be seeing each other soon again! 🙂

  1. That was a great review! (“After The Sucker Punch,” by Lorraine Devon Wilke.) I’d rather write an entire book than review a book, (or write a synopsis, for that matter). Anyway, that’s it. Great review. I’m off to find out if I can get you to review my memoir, Loveyoubye.

    1. Hello! I know it’s ben awhile but I want to still respond here also for the sake of other readers. You already know, but for others~~I shall indeed be reading and reviewing _Loveyoubye_.

      Quick story, peeps: The day I received it in the mail I had to go to the tax office and so while waiting began to read—ended up reading five chapters in one go. Really looking forward to getting back to it!

      1. Oh and how rude of me! Thanks so much for your kind words about the review. 🙂 Feel free to drop by anytime 😀

  2. Hi Lisl, thanks so much for finding my humble blog and introducing yourself to me. I am having a good look around here as we “speak” and loved the whispers in the ears of eternity. I am sure your other posts will also captivate me. xxx

    1. Hello! I’m glad you made it over, and thanks for your kind words and taking the time to comment. 🙂 I have a feeling we’ll “see” each other more as I love to read your thoughts on what’s going on in the world and your space in it–it’s sort of like being included in a conversation. I’m glad you are liking what you’re seeing here, and hope you’ll comment more because I really love to learn what people are enjoying the most. Looking forward to more of your wonderful posts ~LIsl~
