Love and Scones - a Konigsburg Short

What happens when Allie Maldonado enters a Cooking Channel scone contest? Chaos, of course, since this is Konigsburg. But never fear, Wonder Dentist saves the day. Click here to download this free short story featuring some of your favorite characters from my Konigsburg books (.pdf format).

Peg Bracken's Oyster-Olive Dip (from the Naughty Nine Christmas part)

  • Ingredients
  • 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 dash Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped ripe olives
  • 1 can (9 ounces) smoked oysters, drained and chopped

Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and hot sauce in a small bowl. Mix until well blended. Fold in olives and smoked oysters.

Just for fun--a jigsaw puzzle of Wedding Bell Blues and another puzzle of Venus in Blue Jeans.

Electronic Bookmarks

I spent a fun afternoon creating my own bookmarks for Venus in Blue Jeans--no this isn't the cover, it's all mine! Now I'm looking for places where I can pass them out. But this first release of Venus is an ebook, which (unfortunately) can't use a bookmark. Still, I wanted to share my handiwork with you. If you'd like an electronic (.pdf) bookmark that you can store with your copy of Venus in Blue Jeans, you can download by clicking here.

After the publication of Wedding Bell Blues, I did another bookmark so that I'd have something with both books. This is a two-sided bookmark, with pictures of the books and some quotes from kind reviewers. For a .pdf copy, click here.

If you'd prefer a printed copy of my current bookmark, send me an e-mail at
