"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.

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.


You are a very calm and contemplative person. Others are drawn to your peaceful, nurturing nature.
