Last week, I was attending a dinner with some coworkers and a few guests, in advance of an important meeting the next day. One of my coworkers identified as having a nut-allergy, so the waiter was careful to point out which items had nuts, which didn’t, and which could be ordered without them. The person...

This could have made for a good one-liner, but the backstory leads me to a subject that’s been kicking around in my draft folder for several months. The story began just before leaving for our road trip to Pittsburgh. We needed music. I have tons of music – well, not compared to our daughter, but... Continue Reading →
Once again, it’s time for Linda G. Hill’s mind-bending challenge to compose coherent text around an oddball theme in response to her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ’blue.’ Talk about the first blue object you see when you sit down to write your post. Have fun!”... Continue Reading →
Two things are happening this week that caused me to bring a not-exactly-new collection of doors to the festival. One, work is driving me crazy. Two, I love these barns! To be clear, these are all new photos. They’re just new photos of barns, some of which you’ve no doubt seen before. Still, there’s a... Continue Reading →
I have been known to give the big-box hardware stores a rough ride here at No Facilities. I prefer my local hardware store, but there are some things they don’t carry. Last summer, the things they didn’t carry were two motion sensing outdoor floodlights. If you’re anywhere near my age, you remember a limited variety... Continue Reading →
Before I decided to take Sunday’s off from writing, I was working my way through the saga of a mortgage company in meltdown mode. Earlier posts are here, here and here. I was planning to share a few more comical stories, before heading to a two-part finale, but I think I’ll just wrap it up... Continue Reading →
The weekend is here and it’s time to visit Cheryl at the bar and work our way around Linda G. Hill’s famous Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘weigh/way/whey.’ Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you do that last thing. Enjoy!” Let’s have some fun.... Continue Reading →
Teagan shows off two – that’s right, two – sweet looking covers. One for her upcoming 1920s serial story, and one for her Flapper Dictionary. I can’t wait to get a copy of that!

Welcome to Jazz Age Wednesdays and a double cover reveal!
That’s right not just one, but two covers — both for Roaring Twenties books.
I’ve brought along a couple of 1920s musicians to liven up this celebration.
I love making book covers and promo images. Today I’m double excited to reveal two of the designs I’ve created for my upcoming books.
First, and most importantly, the third book in my Roaring Twenties series will launch this autumn. It continues the adventures about the flapper, Pip and her friends. Here’s the cover for A Ghost in the Kitchen.
A Ghost in the Kitchen by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene
Announcing my first non-fiction book!
During seven years of publishing stories with a Roaring Twenties setting here at my blog, in addition to the books about Pip, Granny Phanny, and their friends, I’ve done a lot of research. That…

During our recent visit to Pittsburgh, our daughter Faith and I and my brother decided to visit the area of Pittsburgh known as the Strip District. Despite the potential for rolling or rising eyes, the Strip is mainly a retail area, featuring Pittsburgh paraphernalia i.e. Steelers, Pirates and Penguin gear, and food. I’m going to...
