1920s Stories about Pip and Friends

All the Pip stories by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene

All the Pip books by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene. Purchase links: The Three Things Serial Story, Murder at the Bijou, and A Ghost in the Kitchen

The Three Things Serial Story is a spontaneously written (“pantser”) story. Everything in it — characters, setting, plot, was driven by “things” left by readers of the blog Teagan’s Books, episode by episode. Each week readers left three more things. The story evolved according to what those random things inspired. The serial began with oscillating fan, which brought me the vision of the 1920s setting. The era and narrator continued in two more serials that followed. While it was not great literature, it sure was a fun ride!  Here’s a trailer to put you in a Roaring Twenties mood.

Murder at the Bijou — Three Ingredients I

This is the second “three things” serial.  It picks up where the novella ended.  Murder at the Bijou — Three Ingredients I is a spontaneously written, pantser story.  This time the “things” readers sent to drive the serial were “ingredients.”

The Jazz Age setting is Savannah, Georgia where our flapper, Pip, is “sentenced” to live with her grandmother and learn to cook.  Pip gets caught up in a layered mystery that includes bootleggers, G-men, and the varied challenges of being a young woman in changing times.  She meets new friends, including some animal characters.

A Ghost in the Kitchen — Three Ingredients II

A Ghost in the Kitchen, Three Ingredients-2 continues the flapper adventures of Paisley Idelle Peabody, aka Pip.  It’s a 1920s “pantser” story and a culinary mystery. This time Pip’s pal Andy (from The Three Things Serial Storyreturns. Granny Phanny is there too. She’s still trying to teach Pip to cook.  Granny is in a lather because of the supernatural goings-on in her kitchen. There’s also one pos-ilutely potent poltergeist!

New adventures abound as Pip and Andy unravel an old mystery.  It’s all spontaneously driven by “ingredients” sent by readers of the blog, Teagan’s Books.

The Atonement, TN Universe

Atonement, Tennessee

Atonement, Tennessee is now available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook versions.  It is an urban fantasy with a mystery on the side. The story pulls in characters loosely inspired by the ancient Celtic myth of Gwydion fab Don.  It also features an ensemble of memorable southern personalities.  I did a post sharing my thoughts about releasing the book.

Atonement in Bloom

Although she didn’t know the details, in a past life, Ralda ― Esmeralda had been involved in something with those supernaturals and the repercussions had carried into her present life.  In Atonement, Tennessee, that almost got her killed.  Now she has new problems, and new supes to complicate matters.

Atonement in Bloom continues the misadventures of Ralda, her friends, and neighbors in the small (but far from peaceful) town of Atonement, Tennessee.  Her old house and cemetery are still there, along with Lilith the cat, quirky townsfolk, and assorted supernaturals.

The Glowing Pigs — Snort Stories of Atonement, Tennessee

I should mention the order of the Atonement stories.  Your first visit to the town is Atonement, Tennessee. Aside from the heroine and her neighbor-friends , you’ll meet the grumpy sheriff, Robin Warden. The first “snort” in The Glowing Pigs, Snort Stories of Atonement, Tennessee is about a very young Deputy Robin.  That particular story is tied to the novel Atonement in Bloom.

Stand Alone Works

Brother Love — A Cross Road

It’s a mysterious story, set in rural Mississippi of the late 1950s to early 1960s. It’s also a “Twilight Zone-ish” novella.  The story was inspired by the combination of a Neil Diamond song and the blues legend of Robert Johnson and the devil at the crossroads.  It’s closer to speculative fiction than fantasy.


Hullaba Lulu, a Dieselpunk Adventure

Hullaba Lulu, a Dieselpunk Adventure is a novella — a 1920s ascetic with retro-futuristic technology.  It’s a wild and wooly ride on Valentino’s amazing train for Lulu and her friends.

Coming from Dan Antion’s blog – did not know where to leave a comment (to complicate it, I’m writing from my other blog), but it is Jesh StG) , but your comment that another boss acknowledged you, (redacted), brought a smile on my face, because similar things happened to me:) At least someone is noticing your efforts:):)

  2. Hi Tegan, you will not believe this, but sometime ago we spoke about tummy bugs and I recommended a lady and her blog and the discussion about Slippery Elm and how it could help. Sounds like a fantasy fiction? It isn’t, I just could not find her on my blog for a long time. I never forgot…but I have found her. It is Sandra. I lost her link for her blog somehow, but she visited my blog today and here is her link. Hooray! You can check out all her good stuff to eat and drink the health and wellness advice + more, You can also talk to her. She is really wonderful. http://radianceproject.nz
    Lots of hugs from me, Joycelin


    1. Hi Kevin. Thanks for stopping to leave a comment. Yes. I have friends, and many readers who are “baby boomers” and may not always own all the communication gadgets. So if one doesn’t care to invest in a Kindle or a Nook, there are free “apps” that still let them buy the book and read it on their computers. Thanks for drawing attention to this. Hugs! 😀


  3. Hey Shelley. Thank you so much for reading my novel. Seriously. It means a lot to me.
    LOL… of course i left some things open ended — i had to get you to come back! Yes you do smell a sequel… I’m trying hard to find time/energy to finish it.
    I’m glad Gwydion has a friend in you. He has hidden heights and depths waiting to be explored.
    Looking forward to hearing about your latest adventure. Mega hugs! 😀


  4. Back again. Finished last night. Boo! You left too much hanging. Without even checking I smell a sequel. I still am rooting for Gwydion. Great fun to read, but like I said before, I would have been out of there! 🙂 Am so impressed that you had the focus to write and publish. Bowing now! 🙂


  5. Hey Shelley! LOL, especially those two…! But are they really looking after her or something else? Too soon to tell, until you reach the end. 😉
    I’m flattered that you are reading Atonement. That means a lot to me. Mega-hugs!


    1. Christopher you truly made my day! What a lovely surprise. I’m flattered and honored that you took time to read Atonement, and particularly that you enjoyed the character. If i can ever manage to work on book-2, the feline co-narrator gets a little more adventure. Huge hugs!


  6. Oh my! So many wonderful books – you have a great skill. I’ve just found your website after seeing your like on my site, now I’m very interesting in seeing more. 🙂


  7. Thanks so very much for your like on Tide Line Still Life. I hope that you continue to find delight in my photos from time to time!


  8. I got Atonement, Tennessee and looking forward to reading it! I have a bit of a queue and managed to be reading several books at the same time but I’ll get there! 🙂


  9. Hi Evelyne! It’s nice of you to visit again.
    Thanks — I was hoping it would be an attention-getting title. It’s very kind of you to ask. I did a [*very*] rough draft for 2013’s National Novel Writing month. However, I’ve been so busy with my “day job” that I haven’t gone back to it… That and the fact that a book-2 for the “Atonement” series got into my head.
    The “Tatterdemallian” book is much more complex — at least in the writing (hopefully not to the reader). However, I do hope to get back to it soon!



  10. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for liking my story-in-the-making “Rosebud.” I’ve always enjoyed writing and I guess having three children inspires me to write children’s books.
    They are definitely my best critics! Also, I’m really enjoying your blog as well – Very creative stories!!!


  11. Deb you’ve made my day! I’m so glad to hear that. With limited resources, I was lucky to get something that came that close to matching several elements of the story.
    Your comment has greatly encouraged me.

    Have a beautiful week,
