Friday Fare: 4/12/19

So, we *had* a brief taste of spring in my corner of Minnesota.  But also this week, we had snow, followed by sleet, followed by thunder sleet.  Yeah.  The weather isn’t certain what it’s doing, but come this time next week – the recent white stuff that’s been dumped on my yard will likely be gone.

This was an interesting article by The Guardian in the UK about the romance industry’s problem with diversity.  It’s a long read, but it’s a good one and is probably just as pertinent to the mystery genre as it is our bodice-ripping brethren.

Split Rock and its lighthouse is an iconic spot in Minnesota and its current keeper is stepping down after 36 years of service.

And who knew that catering was such a cutthroat industry?  A great piece by the New York Times.


Watching: Caught up on “Riverdale.”  (And yes, still mourning Fred Andrews.)  And almost done with Season 2 of “The Crown.”  (<– I am nothing if not behind on trends.)

Reading: Still reading Layne Fargo’s “Temper” and April Henry’s “Blood Will Tell.” I can tell why Fargo’s book has received so much advanced buzz.

Writing Life: Good things are happening.  Even if my kids were home yesterday on a mid-April snow day. 🙂

Happy Friday!  Make it a good one.

– Shelley


What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
