"Two Thumbs up to new mystery writer, m j hollingshead"
The Caney Valley Tuesday Readers.
Tom, Daddy, his perseverance and honesty were his trademarks.
Daddy had a major influence upon my life.
I come from farming folks.
Was always underfoot and in the big middle of everything as a kid in the San Joaquin Valley, California. Once I managed to get myself in front of pitchfork when older cousins were pitching hay to the cows.
My mama and their mama called up to the top of the hay in the sweet dulcet tones only farm women can muster: "Don't you DARE bleed on that hay; the cows won't eat it."
Practicality is well ingrained.

Accomplishments: Have returned to teaching after two+ years as QMRP at facility for adult mentally retarded residents.
Taught school 20+ years in California, where on first day that first year I faced 42 students. They were non English speaking and my Spanish was nonexistent. By years end there were 182 on the register. Most of the students I taught were migrant. This past year my class load has been 8 or 9 ... GOSH what a change!
CERTIFICATION: EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHING CREDENTIAL, STANDARD TEACHING CREDENTIAL, QMRP DESIGNATION
California Meridian District Award of Merit, adult scouter award; Boy Scouts of America.
1992 won writing contest sponsored by Pryor Creek, Oklahoma newspaper. Snake in the Hen House was fun to write.
Raised two decent boys to men who have good work ethic, were never part of drug scene and think pretty much as their mom does: a job means go to work ... everyday ... and do an honest day in exchange for the pay.
