Teen angst in the early 1960s. A young girl must move because of her father's new job, after having lived her first thirteen years in the warm cocoon of close friends, family ties and community spirit. The move results in big tragedies and small triumphs. She endures a fractured skull, desegregation and the horror of the JFK assassination close by. Plus, she is a nerd. A dream date saves it.

Blade Chatter, Twenty Four Stories of the Macabre is a volume of short fiction that includes such topics as geezers gone wild, alien life, strange medical conditions, phobias, alcoholic rants, creative bully removal, tainted, unrequieted love and jealousy to the max--refreshing, as short story collections are not so common these days. Maybe reminiscent of Poe, Saki and Hitchcockian in tone.

Mumbledypeg, On Call is a story that is hysterical to children with some educational applications inserted nicely.

How can Mrs. Mumbledypeg and Snaggletooth prepare Dexter for his important meeting with the governor?

NOTE: THIS IS THE TEXT-ONLY version of Catho Darlington. Catho goes from pigtails to pompadoured ponytail, leaving in her wake a hodgepodge of humorous and heartwarming experiences. It is all done with a gusto that can only be fermented with sassafras tea and "acifidity bags." Midwest Book Review says, "an original and genuinely talented author..heartwarming style."

It is filled with haunting words, dark imagery and occasional humor--it is most importantly from the heart. There are a few encore poems in this volume and many that have been honored with literary awards.

Smashwords book reviews by Sara Marie Hogg

  • The Winning Certificate on Aug. 04, 2011

    This reader loves Mr. Miller's series of school campus who-done-its, solved by Rick Podowski and the Hefty Trio. The way he weaves the recipes and wine into the stories is sheer genius. Rick and the Hefty Trio love to chow down and one gets hungry while reading about their delicious snacks--so nice to actually have the real and time-honored, tested recipes contributed by "Rick" and "his friends." This book was particularly poignant and I shed a few real tears toward the end of the story--Sara Marie Hogg, author of Blade Chatter and Catho Darlington.
  • Murder Before the Bell on Aug. 04, 2011

    Rick Podowski and the Hefty Trio are able to solve another horrendous school campus crime. Whatever they are eating at any given time is surely BRAINFOOD. This series of campus mysteries is delightful, especially appreciated if you have ever worked in a school system. I am making sure that I read all of the Podowski series, and trying at least half of the recipes included. Thanks--Sara Marie Hogg, author of Blade Chatter and Catho Darlington.
