1920s Stories about Pip and Friends
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 Story) returns. 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-i–lutely 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 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.
