Just Me

I write in several genres. Mystery being my favorite. But my first venture in getting my writing into book form was Eight Miles of Muddy Road, a memoir of growing up as a sharecropper's daughter in (very) rural central Georgia. Available from moi and Amazon, in print and ebook format.
Prior to that first venture in producing a book, I 'd had a couple of mystery/crime stories published in small circulation print magazines, several published online and more since. I've also had stories published in print anthologies and an ebook anthology by a traditional publisher. That publishing contract for a novel length mystery still eludes me though. But we persevere.
Two of my mystery characters, both female, star in their own series. Well, the first book of their series anyway. And one is under consideration by a publisher. Others are WIPs.
Meantime I gathered several of my mystery short stories and self-pubbed a book, Best Served Cold, Revenge a la Carte. Also available from me, the author, and Amazon. More about it later.
I welcome comments and/or if you'd like to send me an email, here's the address: Sylvia

Who would have thought

that coming up with a name for a new blog would be so difficult? My other blog, Post Oak Chronicles, was originally going to be my writing blog. But it kind of morphed into a chronicle of family doings and thoughts about my home town and the beautiful area of East Tennessee in which it's located. Worthy subjects for a blog, but I need one to 'showcase' my mystery stories and novels. Hence, Mystery Lane Rambler. My main writing website is ramblinscribe.com. So I decided to stay with the 'ramblin' theme. Along with 'rambling on' about my writing, I'll be posting bits of writing advice and titles of writing books that have helped me through the years.
