Pooks, thanks so much for handling this so gracefully while I was traveling! Fabulous interview and I appreciate you stopping by the wenches to talk. I know your books are fantastic and hope a few wench readers will see that too

From Pat: I'm here in Southern California where the only signs of autumn tend to be piles of pumpkins at the grocery store and the dropping of prickly sweetgum balls. And I know down-under is going into spring, but you at least experience autumn as Anne tells us, if only on the other end of the year. So this month we asked the wenches what their favorite part of autumn is. My favorite part is pumpkin spice! From Anne: The poet Keats wrote of autumn as a "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness" but where I live there are very... Continue reading

thanks for the great blog, Jo! I love shawls, and yes, the finest ones weigh considerably less than those from Target. ;) I think wearing them might have more to do with climate these days. I live in a climate that has no extremes, so I really don't need an anorak. But it will be a little chilly when I go out in the morning and may heat up by noon, just like anywhere else. So a light scarf for evenings and mornings is just right most days. And for a/c!!!

thank everyone so much for the kind words. Anne and I will take a look at all your answers when we're both on the same waking schedule. And did anyone take a good look at Mad Maria's cover and see the glaring error?

thank you! And laughter may be in our perception of life. I have just discovered the D is missing on the cover of Mad Maria's Daughter. I don't know if the book gods ate it as a sacrificial goat or my eyes are that bad that I didn't notice earlier. But I choose to laugh and wonder if it should now read Mad Maria's Laughter

Thank you, ma'am, for being one of my loyal readers. Check the excerpts to be certain they're not something you don't already have. The titles are unchanged from the original, but I know sometimes my memory fails me.

LOL, these were written in the day when Regencies didn't mean "hot." Oh for those gentler days...!

No one can read aloud as fast as I read to myself, so I get irritated at audio. It's just too slow. But reading in the car is one of my very favorite places!

Yessssss, she says--which is why my e-reader is so handy to slip into a purse!

Aren't Susan's images fabulous? That's her art background showing. She has a family gig today but the rest of us are in and out all weekend. I need to learn to read in bed but never really have. A recliner is my favorite place. By the time I hit the pillows, my eyes are closed!

I'm still searching for a better word than "magic." But it is inexplicable in terms of science.

I know I've read about them frequently but everything I read online says they only get it right about 50% of the time. As usual, I'm torn between logic and wanting to believe in magic!

Cool, thanks for the info! I'm not exactly certain how I'll end up using my dowsers, but I love exploring the possibilities!

I know its hard to see in our own lives, although your examples are great. But its fun to stretch our minds a little to consider possibilities! Sent from my iPad

I am fascinated! How do you know for certain there is someone down there? Digging up my mountain would take a lot of time unless results are certain. And I think youre right that some people are more in touch with these abilities than others! Sent from my iPad

Love is definitely a mystery, but its a bit hard to portray that wonder sometimes. Hmm, maybe I should have sparkles! Sent from my iPad
