Day of the Dead - Dia de Muertos

Honoring the dead.  

We should be doing that.  

Here's an excellent article about the history of  Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). -


I think Madame Marie Laveau would appreciate being honored.

Here's a picture I took of Madame Laveau's crypt in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 when I visited New Orleans.

Click on the link to read a story I wrote about her which was included in the Anthony award winning 2016 Bouchercon Anthology edited by Greg Herren, Blood on the Bayou.

You can click on the book cover to buy a copy of the anthology 

 It's excellent!
Especially if you love New Orleans

Blood on the Bayou was published in conjunction with Bouchercon, the World Mystery Convention, which was held in New Orleans in 2016. As with the convention itself, the anthology spreads a broad canopy across a wide variety of crime writers from across the country and around the world—including both veteran writers and the brightest up-and-coming talents in the field. These stories range from the light-hearted and fun to the darker side of crime; just as New Orleans and the bayou country can show both to the unsuspecting.

You'll find stories by best selling authors David Morrell, Alison Gaylin and many others.
