By Terri Schlichenmeyer Your friends all think you’re weird. And maybe they have a point. You love knowing about eerie things, you can’t get enough oddness, and anything that’s disgusting is pretty cool in your book.

‘Totally Mad’ is pure nostalgia for former kids of all ages

By Terri Schlichenmeyer There are many things you still wish you had from your childhood. Freedom to play, for one. The ability to make a fool of yourself and not care.

‘Casual Vacancy’ is a complex book with a lot of pathos, humor, and allegories

By Terri Schlichenmeyer When you’re gone, you’ll leave behind many important things. There’ll be photos and memorabilia, money, bric-a-brac, and property to divvy up. Great-grandma’s china goes here, your mother’s jewelry there, and a cherished belonging of your father’s will become someone else’s cherished belonging. When you’re dead and gone, you’ll leave many things behind [ Read More ]

Time to get the kids outside

Your Mom is awfully tired of you. She’s tired of you running up and down stairs, in and out doors, from kitchen to bedroom. She’s tired of your noise from video games, talky toys, TV shows, and electronics. Most of all, she’s very, very tired of you saying that you’re bored. But it’s true: you’re [ Read More ]

If you love old movies, then ‘Dropped Names’ is for you

Admit it. You’re kind of klutzy sometimes. And clumsy. That’s you, as pillows are tossed, furniture bumped, frames go askew, nerves are shattered and so is glassware. You’re Molly McMessy, as knees are skinned, bruises erupt, and moods drop, busted next to belongings on the sidewalk. Ooops. Butterfingers. But dropping things isn’t always bad; just [ Read More ]
