I Love a Good Mystery!

Is it Soup Yet?


Allow me to expose my insecurities.
I don’t follow recipes very often. I mean, I do, the first or second time I make something, but I don’t usually take the time to pull out the directions and follow them carefully every time.
This proved disastrous at one church dinner when the crunchy topping of my apple pie refused to crisp. I realized after delivering a rather soggy mess to a Wednesday night dinner, that butter and brown sugar, without flour, wouldn’t do anything but melt. DUH! I just wish it looked as good as this one does!

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Thanks Jessica. I've not really considered a contest, but that would certainly give me some input when I've exhausted my critiquing. (I LOVE my critique group!) And it would be a way to get feedback on the whole doc at one time. Love that idea!And the soggy pie still tasted good! 🙂


  2. Marji, first of all, LOL all the mushy pie. :)I have cps that stick it to me all the time. When you've polished till it shines, you just have to step out. Close CPs that work with me all the time seem better than tossing my stuff up on a forum, so I've never done that. Contests such as the Genesis give great feedback.I don't know if we writers feel it's ever really done. 🙂 Hugs!
